I am successfully using sshfs with my offsite backup
provider,  I used these instructions:

and have my remote filesystem mounted locally.

I decided that I would like to create a 4 GB GBDE
image and place it on the mounted offsite-filesystem,
and then mount that ... which is a mount on top of a
mount, but theoretically it should work.  But it

When I issue the command:

gbde init /dev/md0 -i -L /etc/gbde/md0

and save the file in the vi editor, making no changes,
I get this error after entering my password:

Enter new passphrase:
Reenter new passphrase: 
gbde: write: Input/output error

So I am mainly just curious - has anyone ever mounted
a GBDE on top of an sshfs mounted filesystem ?
