Me to in conjunction with autofs. The system I was using it on had very
regular file updates and the remote system was a windows box, so a recipe
for things to go wrong. The main issue I had was the fuse/sshfs cache would
often get out of sync with the remote server. Forcibly unmounting the
filesystem after the batch run sorted this as well as a bit of script
locking. Since then all has been good. This was linux based though.
