That would make some sense with what i saw. I definitely saw some caching
behavior; the problem that the behavior wasn't consistent. I'd run "ls" and
get a massive delay, and then it would be quick for a few times in a row,
then it would slow down again. Maybe the cache expires too quickly?
I'm still not clear, though, on why NT security is needed in any way
different from before. I mean, in the past, ls would have to check the NTFS
permissions to see if the user had rights, so what's changed?
Thanks for the comments!
