It's supposed to work as you expect, locally and client/server
both.  I'm very surprised by the behaviour you saw -- so
surprised that I can't help suspecting that something else was
going on, since I don't believe I've ever seen an up-to-date
check pass when it shouldn't.

Umm, those are pretty old!  May I suggest upgrading to 1.11.5?
No guarantee that it'll help, but it couldn't hurt.

You probably know which red flag that's raising for me :-)  But
from what you say above, it sounds as though only the one
CVS-server Linux box is accessing the repo directly (i.e. it's
the only NFS client to touch it).  If that's correct, it makes
things less worrisome -- but I suppose there still might be
interoperability problems between the Linux NFS client and your
NFS server if it's on a different platform.

A distributed system is one on which I cannot get any work done,
because a machine I have never heard of has crashed.
