Package: mtpfs
Version: 1.1-5
Severity: normal


calling "mptfs -h" causes:

$ mtpfs -h
Listing raw device(s)
Device 0 (VID=0fce and PID=51a7) is a SONY Xperia Z1 Compact MTP+ADB.
   Found 1 device(s):
   SONY: Xperia Z1 Compact MTP+ADB (0fce:51a7) @ bus 2, dev 3
Attempting to connect device
Android device detected, assigning default bug flags
Error 1: Get Storage information failed.
Error 2: PTP Layer error 02fe: get_handles_recursively(): could not get object 
Error 2: Error 02fe: PTP Data Expected
Listing File Information on Device with name: (NULL)
LIBMTP_Get_Storage() failed:-1

So how to mount? And how can I work around the listed exception?
Manpage does not contain any useful information, it only mentions -h
option. But -h does the thing above. So manpage is probably wrong.
/usr/share/doc/mtpfs/README has some information but still no hint how
to work around the problem above.

The device is running Lineage 12.1 and works just fine with Windows.
