Bug #2416: '.' entry can be removed on mounted nfs filesystem

Author: Francois Tigeot
Status: New
Priority: Normal
Target version: 

I use a shared /usr/pkgsrc/packages on various DragonFlyBSD machines

Just after doing a "rm *" to remove accumulated cruft in packages/All
on a client machine, I noticed the "." entry had disappeared.

On the client machine I typed the command on, ls(1) only shows a unique '..'
entry in /usr/pkgsrc/packages/All. /usr/pkgsrc/packages doesn't
contain a '.' entry anymore. None of its subdirectories do.

On other client machine, the '.' entry has also disappeared from
/usr/pkgsrc/packages and all its subdirectories.

The server still contains '.' and '..' entries in the exported directory and
all its subdirectories.

Clients and server machines are all running DragonFly-3.1.
mount points and all of is
