Rhythmbox only worked with gnome-vfs remote (e.g. sftp) mounts if they
didn't require user intervention, such as entering a password or
authorising Rhythmbox to access a keyring. If accessing the mount
required user intervention Rhythmbox would crash and/or hang.

Because of this importing gnome-vfs remote mounts has been disabled.
Gnome bug 140355 has a patch attached to it, which fixes the problems
and re-enabled support for remote mounts. It works for me, but needs
more testing before it could land in cvs.

If you compile Rhythmbox yourself, could you try out the patch and see
if it works for you? The patch should (hopefully) apply cleanly to
0.9.1, but it probably needs updating for current cvs.
