    After mounting the gmailfs, I have problem when doing the ls.

    As shown below:

    [me@/] mount /mnt/gmail_abc                 <<-- mount it
    [me@/] cd /mnt/gmail_abc           
    [me@/mnt/gmail_abc] ls -l                   <<-- give nothing
    total 2
    drwxr-xr-x  3 sam  sam     1 Jun 26 17:06 ./
    drwxr-xr-x 13 root root 1024 Jun 22 15:57 ../
    [me@/mnt/gmail_abc] cd sw                 <<--  but, it has <sw>
    [me@/mnt/gmail_abc/sw] ls -l               <<-- still, nothing
    total 1
    drwxr-x--- 7 sam sam 1 Aug  9  2008 ./
    drwxr-xr-x 3 sam sam 1 Jun 26 17:06 ../
    [me@/mnt/gmail_abc/sw] mkdir dummy
    mkdir: cannot create directory `dummy': Invalid argument
    [me@/mnt/gmail_abc/sw] cd dummy
    [me@/mnt/gmail_abc/sw/dummy]             <<-- the dir is there
