Since the nfs server version I am running is current, I wouldn't think it
would matter, but I updated to the current Cygwin anyway...

OK - I changed the exports entry to:

/exports/c  rowan(rw,all_squash,anonuid=28803,anongid=10513)

More or less the same thing:  the mount of the exported filesystem
succeeds, but a "ls /xp" on the client machine hangs (unkillable) with
periodic messages:

nfs server l1422169:/exports/c: not responding

There are not new entries in /var/log/nfsd.log and the only entries in
/var/log/mountd.log show:

mountd[3604] 06/27/105 07:23 mountd.c 36 : NFS mount request completed (/exports/c, from

Any other thoughts?
