From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041002

Description of problem:
Actually most of apps cannot directly open files form vfs folders. One
have to copy such file form e.g. sftp: share to local disk edit it and
then upload back (using Nautilus). 
In KDE the files accesses via for example fish: protocol are
immediately copied to /tmp edited and automagically copied back to
original location. It is transparent to the apps if file lie on local
filesystem or on remote.
I thing gnome-vfs should give same functionality to be user friendly
it is gnoem-vfs should be transparent for ALL application. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open PDF from remote location under Nautilus (sftp://)

Actual Results:  The PDF reader (xpdf, acroread, gv) cannot open file
from remote share,
one should first copy PDF file to local fs.

Expected Results:  xpdf opens file without any warning

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!
