1) Was this a problem in 1.2G?
2) Is it a problem with remote NFS filesystems, or only local
The reason I'm interested is that I have a machine running untainted
1.2G that mounts two very important 13GB filesystems via NFS. I don't
want to take the time to upgrade this system to -current unless
absolutely necessary, but don't want to whack up the 15GB or so of
stuff currently stored on these disks.
