Many thanks for this report this is actually the first feedback I
receive at all for gnome-vfs;)

I have just installed cygwin yesterday, and I am having problems
getting gnome-vfs to work. It always hangs in the postinstall.
Looking at the script it is trying to execute
(/etc/postinstall/gnome-vfs2.sh.done), it is trying to run
gconftool-2. If I run that script manually, it also hangs. However,
if I cancel the installation, then gnomevfs-ls will work anyway with
local directories. However, it doesn't work with a remote
webdav-enabled web server. So
just hangs. That directory works just fine in Mozilla. ftp seems to
work fine with gnomevfs-ls.
I have the firewall disabled, is it evtl. a problem with your firewall
settings? gconftool-2 needs to start gconfd-2 to work and gconfd-2
needs access to the local network.
This is on a Windows XP SP2 machine. Is this a known problem? I
looked through the archives, but I couldn't find anything pertinent.
I cannot reproduce your observation , it works for me with NT4 as it
does with XP/SP2, but see above comment about my firewall settings,
try to allow gconfd-2 to access the network, though I have currently
no idea which ports it is using.
