SubjectStrange problem with 2.0.34 NFS client and 2.1.125 (old user-space) NFS Server


we are faced to a rather ugly problem:

Server: 2.1.125 with old, user space nfsd
Client: 2.0.34 , both RH 5.1

There is one file, that on either directory read or stat(), turns the
whole nfs tree in a single, normal file. The mount point turns out those
normal, plain file. Sometimes I am able mv() the moint point, create a new
one and remount. Sometimes the mv() hangs uninterruptable. I think this
surely has something to do with the inode number. The file is physically
on a different FS as the root inode that gets mounted.

Does anybody know about the problem?

Is anybody willing to investigate?
