You're welcome.  Thank YOU for your patience.

I had thought the hint on the cygfuse announcement was enough :-)  But no trouble 
to add it on any FUSE apps that are ported.  Thanks.

A couple of things.  Windows differs from Unix/Linux (yet again!) in that 
directories mounted upon cannot exist beforehand.  So if you rmdir servmount,
	sshfs servmount
ought to succeed, but instead you will get "read: Software caused connection 
abort", so supply a username@hostname and it should work.  The abort is some sort 
of problem with sshfs which I'll investigate.  On my machine,
	sshfs mark@m0: /mnt/servmount
works fine.
