Description Frank Bures 2001-10-25 13:18:33 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.61 [en] (OS/2; U)

Description of problem:
ls [a-z]* command over an NFS mounted directory does not return anything, while ls over the same directory works normally
Problem appears in both 2.4.9-6 and patched 2.4.9-7.4 kernels.  Downgrade to  2.4.3-12 solves the problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Upgrade to 2.4.9-6 or patched 2.4.9-7.4 kernel
2.  Login as user, whose $HOME directory is on an NFS mounted remote volume
3.  Try ls.  The directory is listed.
4.  Try 'ls n*', where 'n' is the first character in the name of an existing file
5.  The command returns "File not found".

Expected Results:  Listing of file names starting with the defined character.
