Anybody see this?  ruff is SunOS 4.1.4, endplay is NetBSD-1.2G

reboot endplay

Then, on ruff:

> elm
Can't open folder '/usr/spool/mail/dej' for reading!
> su
ruff# mount -vat nfs
mount: access denied for endplay:/work
mount: giving up on:
mount: access denied for endplay:/spool
mount: giving up on:

OK, on endplay:

kill -1 `cat /var/run/`

Back to ruff:

ruff# !!
mount -vat nfs
endplay:/work mounted on /work
endplay:/spool mounted on /spool
ruff# exit

at which point I can read my mail...

So: for some reason, when mountd starts, it doesn't want to grant access to
anything.  But, after HUPing it, everything's fine.  Also wierd: shouldn't
an NFS server come up and be available to clients without them needing
to re-mount?

[BTW, for bridge players: my firewall is squeeze, and the X terminal is
finesse. ]
