 |Using above settings I can browse my homedir using a std. webrowser.
 |However trying to use webdav, client will reject the url -- last thing

Your MOUNT configuration mapps any request to the top directory of the
sftp server.  To map the path name in the request URL, represented in
the left hand of the MOUNT, the right hand of the MOUNT parameter must
be followd with "/*" like this:

  MOUNT="/* sftp://fileserver.fqdn/*"
