I second that but......

Sri: keep your eyes on the 1.3preX series over the next month or
three.  The NFS issue is relatively recent (we had a damn good NFS
track record until I blew it merging and tweaking "inode signatures"
-- I operated on the false assumption that dev and ino numbers were
constant when the inode signature stuff came along) -- the fixes are
known -- it's (blush) on my plate to fix ---- it's in the pipeline.
Muddle through as you can for now.  Feel free to contact me about
consulting to bump the priority (and, in so doing, advance arch
generally).  Either way -- it won't be all that long.  Sorry for the
temporary annoyance.
