I am using the current Ubuntu Gutsy repository packages of obexfs and obexftp on Xubuntu.
I am able to mount my E61i with
obexfs -b <BT-Address> -B 11 ~/E61i
but there seems to be a problem with "larger" files.
In this case "larger" means as larger than small text files.
Every time I click on a file in Thunar, Thunar hangs up.
And it takes several seconds to minutes for it to regain consciousness.
The larger the files, the longer it takes.
I assume that it freezes as long as obexftp needs to download the file from the phone.
Is there any way to prevent obexfs from downloading the whole file every time I click on it?
We are speaking about selecting the file, not opening it.
I already deactivated preview thumbnails to prevent thunar from freezing when I enter a folder with pictures or videos in it, but all in all this is not very satisfying.

There is no block based access to files. Previewing means loading the whole file from the phone.
