mount.sshfs fails with error "fuse: unknown options(s):" #96

After a recent update of my Arch machine, I have been unable to mount remote filesystems of type "fuse.sshfs" using the mount utility, which fails with the following error message:
fuse: unknown option(s): -o user
This is probably caused by the option user in my corresponding /etc/fstab entry, which is necessary for non-root users to be able to manually mount filesystems.

I have noticed that the previous mount helper (i.e., mount.fuse) had a certain set of command-line arguments which were ignored by default, with user and _netdev being among them.

Shouldn't mount.sshfs also ignore these arguments as well?

There is also a discussion regarding this issue on the Arch forum:
