Thank you very much for this information Steve. As you said the gconf
entry enables the save button and gnome-vfs (gnome-vfs/2.22.0
neon/0.25.4) can use HTTP PUT with no problems. However, gvfs cannot
handle http: locations in write mode. Looking at their svn, it looks
like http put support was removed last year[1]. I'll see if the gvfs
community can shed any more light on this.
