Problem when mounting a remote directory under /media

Bug #132936 reported by Sebastien Wains
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
sshfs-fuse (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

In the first place, I was trying to mount a remote directory under /media, so a drive icon would pop up on my desktop, just like when I insert my USB drive or mount a truecrypt volume..

When I try to mount under /media, I get no error message but I can't access the mounted directory.
I get this :

user@user:/media$ ls -l
total 8
?--------- ? ? ? ? ? remote_dir
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 6 2007-04-24 11:29 cdrom -> cdrom0
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2007-04-24 11:29 cdrom0

remote_dir is displayed in red.

No problem when mounting somewhere else, like under /mnt :

user@user:/mnt$ sshfs root@server:/path/to/remote/dir/ remote_dir/
user@user:/mnt$ ls -l
total 4
drwxr-xr-x 1 user user 4096 2007-08-16 15:19 remote_dir

I also see this problem although this happens to me under /mnt as well as other directories.
I'm running 7.04. Happy to provide further information upon request.

Is this symptom still reproducible in 8.10 beta or later?

I was able to mount my NFS shares under /media with no problem at all under 8.10.
