It is - I was overdoing it....

I get (psg = ps -ef | grep -i):

[mrichter at swordfish ~]$ psg rpc
rpc       5786     1  0 14:32 ?        00:00:00 portmap
root      5937    11  0 14:32 ?        00:00:00 [rpciod/0]
root      5938    11  0 14:32 ?        00:00:00 [rpciod/1]

I'm listed there (it's 'showmount' though :-).

I am now certain that this is an nfs issue, but I haven't a clue where
to look.  I noticed that my backup system had a
/var/lock/subsys/nfslock file, so I touched it over here.  I think
it's running a little faster, but it's still like tar whenever one of
my home dir files gets touched (which is a lot, since most apps use
their .<appname> files for local storage).

Any nfs gurus here?

:-)

Thanks to everyone so far....
