Description raz 1999-10-09 04:46:52 UTC
this exists on 6.0, and 6.1 -- I really think this is a
pitiful bug to go this long and 'in the stable production'
redhat -- directories like .enlightenment which have large
.files in them ... eg:
-rw-rw-r--   1 raz      raz           528 Sep 14 23:39
.usr.share.enlightenment.themes.icE.sound.cfg.preparsed

return NOTHING in them.. ie.. cd .enlightement
ls
total 0
[prompt]$

downgrading to nfs-server and clients from 5.2's updates
is the only way my production server with nfs homes
environment can live.. this is a very nasty bug.
