I use sshfs everyday and find it very useful. One item I have not been able to figure out is when the mount takes place, the mount points show up as "drives" on my desktop. I'm okay with that except for some of the mount points are not owned by my current login. In other words, I have one mount point that is owned by "root" but it appears on my desktop. I get permission denied when I try to access the drive but I'd prefer it not show up if I can't view it. I use GNOME so I'm not sure if that makes a difference. Any thoughts?

I think I may just have to deal with this. When I use fluxbox and other window managers I don't run into this. It's really more of an annoyance than anything.

Maybe try popping open a terminal, and running

$ ls -l
to see who owns the directory.

I just did this on my Ubuntu 10.04 desktop, and the directory has an owner and group of "524:524". When I did this on my previous system (Debian Etch), I had to be a part of the "fuse" group.
