I'm running continuous kernel 2.4.33 rebuild from make mrproper plus 
another console extracting tarball, diff tree against last_extracted, 
on pair of 2.6.17.8 boxen overnight with NFS TCP support, no problems, 
now testing without TCP support.  Report again only if I see problems.  

Let me know if you want to see test scripts.

Grant.
