    I guess that depends on how much it slows down and how much you depend
    on the speed of NFS. I have all of my machines sharing some local
    binaries and docs, but the files are typically small and the network is
    gigE, so I doubt it will hurt me. On the other hand I do know people
    running workstations with virtually everything NFS mounted, working with
    large image files.

    The initial bug report makes it look as if it's about two orders of
    magnitude slower, but doesn't quantify the effect on more common
    sequential access operations.

    If this becomes an issue in 2.6.17, I hope it will show up in -stable
    before 2.6.18, the current development cycle is a bit, um, protracted...

    Obscure bug of 2004: BASH BUFFER OVERFLOW - if bash is being run by a
    normal user and is setuid root, with the "vi" line edit mode selected,
    and the character set is "big5," an off-by-one errors occurs during
    wildcard (glob) expansion.
