I have tcpdump files ready to go but need to know if they will expose
sensitive information, in which case I am loathe to just pump them up to
here for the world to see, but would be happy to send them to someone on
the project directly. I captured two files on the server:

1) The unsuccessful attempt from my client trying to connect using the
entry in /etc/fstab.

2) The successful attempt from my client using an explicit mount command
and the same mount options as specified in /etc/fstab.

Because it works using the mount command after boot and login, I am
still thinking perhaps there is an out-of-order condition where the
entries in fstab are trying to be mounted before network support is
fully up? Again, the mounts via fstab were working on that client with
Ubuntu 8.04 and stopped working after upgrading to 8.10 over the
