Package: unfs3
Version: 0.9.13+dfsg-1prolibre
Severity: normal

If one includes an entry in /etc/exports for a directory that does not
exist, unfsd silently denies access to ANY exports (even valid ones)
until the offending entries are removed.  Although there is a warning in
syslog in this case, there nothing on STDERR.

In contrast, nfs-user-server simply ignores any missing directory
entries.  Since some users might expect unfs3 to be an almost-drop-in
replacement for nfs-user-server, it would help to have unfs3 follow this

Until the problem is fixed, it would be nice to put a little warning
somewhere in the README files.

P.S. You can ignore the version number above: I just did a backport to
