This does not have anything to do with nfsd caching CDROM data (which
it doesn't); it is really a bad NFS file handle. I have no idea
what may be the cause of corruption; either nfsd or amd might be the one
to blame. I am not familiar with the way amd lays out its file handles,
but the above could easily be an amd handle being passed to nfsd by

Please get the latest nfsd from in
