in reply to Nautilus helper script to "Open in gvim"

Nice script. If I edit a file owned by root, gnome-ssh-askpass keeps asking me for the root password. Is there anyway to get around this or do I have to continually enter the root password every time I save a file?

    I'm not quite sure how you'd end up being prompted for the remote machine's root password unless you're browsing a URL like ssh://root@servername/. If that is the case then you could add your SSH public key (eg: ~/identity.pub) to the remote root user's ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file.
