Mount can't do that for ftp or ssh. Either install a FUSE based file
system like curlftpfs or use the GVFS command line utilities, e.g.


That does exactly the same as mounting that server from the GUI. It
gets mounted somewhere under ~/.gvfs/

Any sufficiently advanced bug is indistinguishable from a feature.
