Oh, I don't know whether the bogus data was present in the NFS-client
view of the file. I copied it from the NFS-remote space to local disk,
and the bogus data appeared when looking at the local copies (including
the bizarre one which contained data cc saw but less and vi didn't). I
didn't go back and look at the NFS-remote copies to see if they looked
broken as well. It's entirely possible, for all I know, that if I'd
just been running diskless everything would have been fine.
