Re: [Rhythmbox-devel] importing folders from sftp gnome-vfs mounts

I've just applied this with latest CVS.  Attempting import with an SSH
share crashed RB, with an SMB share it was unable to import files (could
not open file for reading).  
It does appear to work correctly with ftp, though the UI does block for
a short time.
Good work, this is a much needed feature!
