I have problems with object files that are corrupted. I work on my linux
machine in a directory that resides on an NFS mounted remote file system. I
compile all C files in that directory into object files. Sometimes when I
try to link the object files I get an error from ld.

Reproducible: Sometimes
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a copy of a C source on a local dir and an NFS dir
2. Compile in both dirs
3. Compare resulting object files
Please have a look at the URL http://hem.fyristorg.com/pof1/work/


Actual Results:  The object file on the NFS dir sometimes is not linkable,
ld says:
"xxx.o: file not recognized: Memory exhausted"
The object file differ from the reference object generated locally.

Expected Results:  The object file should not be corrupted, of course.

The linux machine runs Red Hat Linux release 7.0 (Guinness), Kernel
2.2.16-22 on an i686. The machine is a Compaq 400MHz Intel Pentium II with
64 MB RAM.

The NFS server is an IBM RS/6000 F50 machine with AIX 4.3.1.

NFS v2 is used.

I think that this is a known bug in the AIX nfs server, and that an
update for AIX is available to solve it.
