yet. Look at
Changing tagline to something more descriptive...
Patch in description looks sane -- have you actually tested it? Can you give a
bit more detail on how to reproduce this? When I do a ls in nfsv4 directory it
works fine for me...

NFSV4. I made the exports to look like
automount options are
for some reason we get the error stated above after the mount and we do a "ls".
We have a RHEL 5 nfs server setup like this RHEL 4.5 one but it doesnt have
these issues when using the same options and same clients.
Let me know if you need more info. I havent tried the patch I pointed to earlier.
I've posted some test kernels with this patch on my people page:
..could you test them and confirm that the problem is resolved?
