I explicitely said that the node is *not* discarded when it is still
used, i.e. when the device it represents is still open. It is only
discarded when there are *no* users anymore, i.e. neither references to
the node itself, nor to the actual device.
Sorry, I guess I misunderstood.
but again, if nodes are created automatically, there will be some strange behavior from the filesystem's point of view.
for example, "ls" can create an transitory node,
or a user can create a node in the directory that is read-only to him.
Maybe it's not really that bad.

OK. I hope though that we can still discuss things from time to time at
least -- otherwise it is very hard to get back into the flow after two
months :-)
It's not that long.  After I submit my report in middle March, I probably have more time on Hurd.
After all, I want to make the rootless Hurd working as soon as possible:-)
I have already implemented all RPCs related to the task port, and now need to see how it works.
