LIBGUESTFS_TRACE and LIBGUESTFS_DEBUG output

Description of problem:

Trying to do virt-filesystems on a remote file via ssh fails with the following error message.

# virt-filesystems -a ssh://root@10.65.210.231/var/lib/libvirt/images/tgtd.img

libguestfs: error: supermin-helper exited with error status 1.
To see full error messages you may need to enable debugging.
See http://libguestfs.org/guestfs-faq.1.html#debugging-libguestfs



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

Fedora release 19 (Schrödinger’s Cat)
libguestfs-tools-1.21.38-1.fc19.x86_64
libguestfs-1.21.38-1.fc19.x86_64

Image file exists in a RHEL6 server. libvirt version installed on it is libvirt-0.10.2-18.el6_4.3.x86_64

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.export LIBGUESTFS_BACKEND=direct
2.virt-filesystems -a ssh://root@10.65.210.231/var/lib/libvirt/images/tgtd.img

  
Actual results:

# virt-filesystems -a ssh://root@10.65.210.231/var/lib/libvirt/images/tgtd.img
libguestfs: error: supermin-helper exited with error status 1.
To see full error messages you may need to enable debugging.
See http://libguestfs.org/guestfs-faq.1.html#debugging-libguestfs


Expected results:

No errors.

Additional info:
I have tried this with and without "export LIBGUESTFS_BACKEND=direct". Both times the command failed.
Comment 1 Richard W.M. Jones 2013-05-14 12:27:34 EDT
The error is actually:

supermin-helper: ext2fs_unlink_inode: EXT2 directory corrupted

which probably indicates there's not enough disk space
available in /var/tmp to cache the appliance.  Try freeing
up a bit of space in /var/tmp and see if that makes a difference.

So it's probably nothing to do with ssh access, but thanks
for (trying to) test ssh.
