  gvfsd-sftp crashed with SIGABRT when unmounting dropped sftp

Status in gvfs package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  After unmounting a dropped sftp connection, gvfsd-sftp crashes.

  Steps to reproduce the error:
  1) connect to LAN
  2) use gvfs-mount to mount an sftp server
  3) disconnect LAN -> the sftp connection is now interrupted
  4) unmount the sftp server via gvfs-mount -u
  5) unmount will succeed but gvfsd-sftp will crash soon after issuing the unmount command.
  6) the sftp mounting functionality does not seem to be affected, but gvfsd should better not crash if it cannot cleanly shutdown the connection because it got dropped.

  Summing up, gvfsd-sftp should have a way to handle broken connections. If it cannot disconnect from the server by cleanly terminating the connection, the connection should be silently dropped.

  Using nautilus as GUI, more problems occur (nautilus freezes): see bug #1361846
