Umm, no, that's not the case. I'm running 2.2 on both machines involved.
Remember, this works fine when the client is a slink system with kernel
2.2.11, but not a potato system with 2.2.11. According to the
documentation for fcntl(), it sets errno to ENOLCK when you try to set a
lock on an NFS mounted file. This is not the behavior I am getting. It
is setting errno to EACCES. This looks like a bug to me. I suspect glibc
2.1, because the same kernel works with glibc2.0, but not 2.1. The
environment is the same in both cases, the client code is the same. The
only difference is the glibc version.
