SSH still shows the appropriate folder icon though.

This is using gnome-vfs-2.16.2 on Gnome 2.16.0 (Fedora Core 6).


That looks strange, thanks for the bug report. Most probably it's the
issue with the gnome setup. Can you please send the following:

What mime type is reported by "gnomevfs-info ftp://someserver/somedir"?

What icon does it search for? You can find the name of the icon by
looking into strace log. You can attach to the nautilus process with the
command "strace -p <nautilus pid> 2> nautilus.log".

I investigated it a bit more and sent the following email to gnome-vfs-list:

"Not sure if this is already known... but I'm experiencing some problems with GnomeVFS over FTP connections. Folders are coming back as application/octet-stream rather than x-folder/normal and thus the icons in Nautilus are all the "unknown" icon rather than folder icons.

I'm using gnome-vfs-2.16.2 on Gnome 2.16.0 (Fedora Core 6)."

And running the command you gave (I didn't know about that command and wrote a quick C program to get the info):
Name              : public_html
Type              : Directory
MIME type         : application/octet-stream
Size              : 4096
Blocks            : 8
I/O block size    : 32768
Local             : NO
SUID              : NO
SGID              : NO
Sticky            : NO
Link count        : 12
UID               : 35513
GID               : 99
Access time       : Mon Jan  1 20:23:00 2007
Modification time : Mon Jan  1 20:23:00 2007
Change time       : Mon Jan  1 20:23:00 2007

So it seems to be the application/octet-stream that's the problem.

This does not occur over SSH, that comes back as x-folder/normal.
