It seems thus that whereas mvfs was able to cope with cygwin symlinks
so far, now it stopped, probably because of the use of utf8.
I do not have access to the NetApp filer from where the view storage is
exported, to modify the export options, nor to the nis server to change
the parameters used in the automount pages.
Reading the source code, filelock.c, I can see that the only thing I could
do to avoid creating those lock files, would be to set purify_flag to t.
I guess there might be unwanted side-effects(?)
Buffer local when working in a view?
I am afraid that this locking (spurious in a ClearCase view which
already uses its own locking mechanism) may have other impacts than
the esthetic one of leaving those files.
Especially, it may be the cause of the horrendous delays I get when
working from home over a VPN connection...
