Hmm.  I don't see much (certainly not "several times"), but what I do
see is the thread about SuSE 9.0 (with a subject of "fileserver problem
on 1.2.11 and SuSE 9.0") where it seems that the problem was due to the
fact that SuSE 9.0 uses NPTL.  Debian 3.0 does not use NPTL, so I can't
imagine that this is related in any way.

Or am I missing something...?
