Hello, I've prepared a package  with Aurelien's patch applied.Could you please build and test it on kFreeBSD before I upload this new package? If it works fine, Miklos Szeredi (fuse upstream) is usually nice and I bet he would accept your patch.
Do you want me to forward it to him for an inclusion in incoming fuse 2.8 ? Regards, Adam.  http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/f/fuse/fuse_2.7.4-2.dsc
