Re: NFS write from emacs (on an SGI) to lispm hangs-up forever

We have DECs (3100s and 5000s), IRISs, Suns (3 & 4) talking to our two Symbolics
(3650) file servers.  We have had problems with packet sizes.  In the /etc/fstab
file on these machines we have had to make some modifications.  For an iris not running 
automount the /etc/fstab entries look like:

alexandria:/              /u8             nfs noauto,rsize=1024,wsize=1024,bg 0 0
enterprise:/u9            /u9             nfs noauto,bg,hard 0 0
hippo:/u11                /u11            nfs bg,hard 0 0

Where Alexandria is the Symbolics.  For Suns and DEC running automount there is NO
entry in the /etc/fstab but in /etc/auto.direct we have (on Sun):

/u8 -rw,rsize=1024,wsize=1024   alexandria:/
/u9                     enterprise:/u9
/u10                    hippo:/u10

Now we have had some strange bugs when an entry was in the fstab and in the auto.direct
or when the sizes were not correct.

Hope this is helpful,
