James, if you didn't get the original mail, please let me know. Your
email address on http://www.karrot-x.net/jamesd/ misses the 'g' in
"gmail", so my first send attempt failed and I don't know whether the
bounce suceeded.

Hm, IIRC I've heard of some problems with the port mapper, but maybe
that was some special case, never used NFS myself.
