Can you test this with the new gnome-vfs2-2.14.1-1.fc5.2 update which 
was just released?  It has some fixes to improve sftp performance.

Comment 2 Otto Rey 2006-04-28 18:41:48 UTC
I test a copy of 228581282 bytes (7 rpm files - 218 MB aprox) from Fedora Core 5
to a Solaris via ssh:

gnome-vfs2-2.14.1-1.fc5.2 : 126 seconds
Midnigth commander : 44 seconds

Maybe MC use some trick like compression or something to speed up transfer...
but i dont know.

Fedora Core 5 is no longer maintained. Is this bug still present in Fedora 7 or
Fedora 8?
