Redhat 7.0  0.8             Redhat 6.1   Broken
RedHat 7.0  0.8             ObenBSD 2.8  Really Broken

I think it's more a problem with the nfs server. At work perhaps the home directories server is powered by

There's is two differents approaches to lock a file : fcntl and flock. The first one should be supported by 
nfs under linux and the second one is not.

On my previous post regarding fcntl(2) errors when trying to do anything
with Evolution 0.8, everyone seems to agree that the issue is that my

I also mount my home directory via NFS - I don't get the same problems,
everyhting works just fine.  The differences between my home setup and
my work setup are: at home I use Debian, at work I use RedHat (6.2).
Also, at work, in addition to my home directory being an NFS mount,
/var/spool/mail/user_name is an NFS mount - BUT, the mail directory is
an NFS mount on a different machine than that which is mounted as a
user's home directory.  So, is the NFS issue distribution specific?
Others have said they don't have this issue in <insert distribution
name>, but they have experienced it in Debian.  Do I need to change the
permissions on something?
