defender is trying to mount starwolf:/var/mail on /var/mail.  Mount
apparently succeeds but accesses to the filesystem return:

	/var/mail: Input/output error

mountd on starwolf complains:
mountd[5329]: "/var/mail", line 8: \
	Can't change attributes for /var/mail to

Here's my exports file:

/export/X11 	-maproot=0
/usr/src 	-maproot=0 -alldirs
/usr/share	-maproot=0
/export/local	-maproot=0
/usr/src/local	-maproot=0 -alldirs

I have stopped and started nfsd on the server, nfsiod on the client and
mountd on the server several times, and to no avail.  Exporting /var
by itself does no good.
