s you said in the next message, on the client.

I\ve looked at the specs for this option (in man 5 rcS) and I don't see 
how it will help.  It merely delays the time the filesystem is mounted 
until later in the boot process.  However, I boot it manually, long after 
the boot is finished. 

Still, I'll try it tomorrow, and see if it works.  All may not be as 

No. Wait.  The /etc/fstab line is /farhome   nfs defaults,user,auto,exec 1 1

So ot's mounted automatically *and* allowed to be user-mounted.  (I 
wonser if these options conflict.) So when I mount it by hand it's after 
(presumably) it has already (presumably) failed to mount ....

Definitely to try it tomorrow when I'm awake and nobody's relying on 
continuous service.
