Thanks. I'll try that.
However, the speed penalty over vpn was there earlier.
It may not depend on whether the files are deleted or not
(the code to delete them does a plain unlink, so I cannot 
why it fails, in fact...).
I have to test this!

This page contained other information that I had 
overlooked. E.g. something concerning case preservation
which I had noticed in file completion.
MVFS is also case preserving (sharing with unix), so
offering to do a lowercase for completion is not welcome.
