Description hydrastis 1999-01-13 21:27:46 UTC
I encountered a nasty bug in the nfsd shipped with rh5.2
(nfsd 2.2beta37).  I have freebsd clients that mount
filesystems from the nfs server(rh5.2).  a number of cron
jobs and cgis modify files on the nfs mount.  i discovered
that when a file was being written to, the length became 0.
On the server, the messages file would have something like:
nfsd[288]:strange write request from 24bits.interclick.com

I searched dejanews, and found that this bug is not unknown,
and a patch was posted on linux.debian.bugs.dist on 10/28.
i have put the url to the usenet article (as found on
dejanews) in the url field above.
