I use Eclipse IDE (Zend Studio to be exact) for editing code on my development servers.

Because we have internal development servers, I connect to them via SSH and use the .gvfs folder in my home directory to access the files through Eclipse.
I.e: /home/s.rees/.gvfs/sftp for s.rees on

Before upgrading to 10.10 Maverick I was fine reading and writing the files, but now any time it goes to save a file I get an empty file as a result. Making it impossible to do any work...

I don't know if this is a bug or a wacky feature (that can be disabled?)... or where I need to report it as such if it is a bug. Any ideas?

Just noted that this is happening also with other editors such as IntelliJ IDEA, GEdit and so on. Problem definitely on 10.10 since was ok on 10.04 I guess that there is a bug in GVFS. – dawez Oct 11 '10 at 16:31

As Valorin who asked the question commented, this is a bug: The rest should be followed there.
