sshfs checks for errors in the wrong order
Last modified: 2011-12-17 09:40:45 EST
sshfs does not check if a mountpoint exists before attempting a mount. It fails later, after the expensive part.
$ sshfs 18.104.22.168:/something localdir
fuse: bad mount point `localdir': No such file or directory
It would be good if the existance of "localdir", the local mountpoint was checked before the network part began.
It seems fixed in the recent fuse.
