I had issues with the MFS /var and /tmp a couple days ago and changed the code to move the "mount -a" up before /var and /tmp creation and then actually test to be sure they are not writable before attempting to create MFS versions. The logic was basicly: if touch /var/_writable_test; then rm /var/_writable_test else #create MFS var fi -- Brooks  I've got a slightly strange configuration with network booting cluster nodes which have a disk for /tmp, /var, and swap. -- Any statement of the form "X is the one, true Y" is FALSE.
