Locking was the main reason why I recommended against using
NFS. This is much less of an issue with ZServer than it was with
the old PCGI publisher, which tried to guess when a site was 
down and automatically restart it when it was.

I also generally don't trust NFS with something as important
as data Data.fs file.

Note that the subject corruption error was due to a software
bug that appeared briefly in the Zope CVS.
