(75/314) 1931653 - No prompt for overwrite by SFTP?!

I was working with jEdit today (v4.3pre13) using the FTP plugin to work with files remotely through an SFTP:// connection, when I accidentally did a "Save As" instead of an "Open" on a file I'd been working with. To my horror, jEdit did not prompt me (as it does for local files) if I wanted to overwrite the file - it just went ahead and did it.

Could someone please fix this ASAP? I have to go reassemble my file now...

Is there any progress on this? I just trashed a file because of it. This is a blocker for using this plugin, and the plugin should really be marked as unsafe and/or withdrawn from the plugins download area. Fortunately I have plenty of backups (although the SFTP plugin doesn't seem to integrate with the backup system in jEdit, but that's another bug).
