So, you did not untar again, but just tried the ls command on the directory
straight away the 2nd time? Does it fail every time now?

If so, can you send me:
	* the NFS parameters you are using to mount the filesystem on
	  the client
	* the output of ls when run on the server
	* the output of "tcpdump -s 1024 -vv port 2049 and host $client"
	  ..on the server while running the command?
	* see what 'ps l' shows for the ls process on the client (or just
	  plain 'ps' from the ddb prompt).

Also, what kind of machine are the client and server?

That option has no effect no the NFS client code.
