The above line changes the passive translator settings for the
"/some/place" node.  In other words, it does not actually start the
translator until you access the node.

For debugging purposes, you should use "settrans -a" which makes the
translator active; adding "-P" will make settrans wait until you press a
key.  This way, you have enough time to get the PID of the translator,
run "gdb /hurd/nfs <PID>", and press a key in order to start the
translator.
