Looking at shfs (shfs.sf.net) I see the last release was on 31 may
2004, which is just after linux- In the mean time we're at
kernel 2.6.15 and lots of in-kernel APIs have changed so shfs might
suffer from bit rot. It's very well possible that those changes do
affect shfs, and the segfaulting you see might be related to that. FUSE
shouldn't have that problem.
