It does, thanks a lot. And shame on me for not mentioning the kernel
version - it's pre2.0.31-2 but the problem applies to any recent kernel.

I do have the latest mount, but based on my discution with amd's
maintainer I didn't think the problem was in mount.. now I know better :)

[nfsmount.c]

I was testing the alpha version of amd 6.0 which does not have the debian
patches yet. The maintainer asked me if there is any flag similar to
NetBSD's NFSMNT_NOCONN to avoid connecting the socket, I didn't find
anything so I went through the nfs code to find some clues. Then posted
the message..

Ok, so I referred amd's maintainer to the debian patches, the relevant
portions will be incorporated in the next alpha version of am-utils 6.0.

Thanks again,
Ionut
