the bug I reported (#502725) is indeed fixed with Clint's NMU, thanks. I
should note that gvfs-fuse-daemon still hangs on heavy use (i.e. #496269
is not fixed, demonstration: run my test script from #502725 on
~/.gvfs/sftp on localhost/path/to/debian-mirror for a while. The ~/.gvfs
will hang while ls-gvfs still works as expected). Note that testing with
localtest may be tricky: I have found that localtest crashes much faster
and that for those gvfs-ls then also stops working (hinting at a bug in
either gvfsd or the localtest backend, the latter evidence making the
backend more suspicious because accessing other mounts still works, but
that is no proof).

Kind regards
