    We've been using S3FS for some time to mount Amazon S3 using Fuse to one of our WHM accounts (the mount is used as a CDN for video distribution). Although this works well, there is one problem: if we try to create a new account in WHM with the S3 bucket mounted via S3FS, WHM tries to create the new account on the S3 filesystem rather than in /home/.

    The workaround is to SSH in and unmount S3FS, then create the account in WHM, then remount the S3 bucket... but this is annoying. Is there anytihng I can do about this?

    S3 is mounted to a directory in the home directory which I guess might be part of the issue.
