NFS interoperability

   o GNU Emacs running under ULTRIX 4.1.52 gets into trouble when saving
   modified versions of pre-existing files via a Genera NFS server.  It
   apparently tries to truncate the old copy (it thinks) of the file, and
   the server goes into some kind of infinite loop when it does.  This
   problem does not occur with our SUN OS, ULTRIX, and DYNIX servers.

Now that you mention it, the same thing happens (the loooong or
infinite truncate) on the System 5ish OS on the Silicon Graphics, also
using EMACS. (A write in Lucid to a Lispm works fine however.) Very
