It still causes the problems outlined in the PR. I just tried it. The
commandline was:

shlight //bugger/share /smb

I was able to create a file (echo foo > foo), dd 5k to a file (dd
if=/dev/zero of=foo bs=1024 count=5), but when I tried to make an archive in
the shlight-mounted directory with pax, it hung, just as the PR describes.

descolada# pax -vwPXf /smb/desco-root.tar /
pax: Removing leading / from absolute path names in the archive


I hit control C when it stuck at rc.conf, but it didn't exit, and is still
sitting there. I expect I'll have to reboot it. df, mount, etc all do the
same thing, and cannot be killed even by root.

The machine is running NetBSD current i386, and the windows box is running
Windows ME.
