hmm, right, I hadn't tried that, since I mostly use it for copying files

it does so when opening other network things, IIRC, so, maybe there's
something missing in the SFTP code?

no idea, I talked with Alex Larsson recently about it, and that's what I
understood. I'm not sure though if there's really someone working on it.

ssh: uses the ssh command and executes commands on the server directly,
which is a bit ugly :-(

gnome-network, so that it gets included in 2.6.
