yup -- exports to another would not be affected by
To some degree, the fact that upstream did not detect the
issue, and I missed it in testing, was a wry observation that
the 'old ways' of a common set of /home/ exported from a very
reliably 'up' box through an office, is passing away.
The takeaway was that I need to 'test as I do, and do as I
test'. My testing regime will have to include 'cloning' a
test box, and simply 'moving into it' for an afternoon when
doing 'updates' QA testing.
