Re: symlink problem

:Using HEAD I sometime experience problem with symlink:
:extra charactes after symlink destination. After some minutes this disappears.

:-- on NFS mount: symlink dest. should be: net-bps
:$ ls -la bin/net
:lrwxr-xr-x  1 thomas  thomas  7 Nov  5 09:00 bin/net -> net-bps??U?AU?U?????E??????U??????*???Q??P?T??E??P(UP??????U??????U**U??U(U??U??U?T?*E??U?T?*U*UE?A??U*@U?
:varsym not enabled: vfs.varsym_enable: 0

    Does this only occur with NFS or is it an issue with UFS too?  Symlinks
    were switched to VM backing store in the kernel, a \0 termination
    bug could have creeped in there.

    If you could, when you see this problem, run your ls test under ktrace
    and post the ktrace output.  Specifically, I want to see what the 
    return value of the readlink system call is in the above case.
