-allow_root

Nikolaus Rath
Hello,

From http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=534284:

| allow_root doesn't seem supported anymore, but allow_other might work.

Is that true? Why has -allow_root been dropped? Mainly for the reasons
in the above bugreport, I think it would very sensible to allow root
(but not other users) access to the fuse mountpoint.

Best,

   -Nikolaus

'allow_root' _is_ supported.  I've just tried it and it works fine.

Thanks,
Miklos

Yeah, it works fine here as well :-). I was more concerned that it may
have been dropped in HEAD or that it is planned to deprecate it in the
future. I take it that your answer implies that this isn't the case
either.

I have reopened the gvfs bug, it seems that the problems can easily be
fixed if --allow-root is used.
