KDEConnect points the Dolphin file browser at its sshfs connection to its client on my Android phone. The ssh endpoint disconnects (no idea why) while Dolphin is copying multiple files. Dolphin assumes completion, all my copied files are corrupt. Well, thanks.

So KDEConnect uses sshfs to connect to an Android host. Hmmm...
