	Automounter is a traditional area of much pain with NFS servers. 
If you need that functionality, "amd" may be a better choice.  My 
personal experience is that this sort of thing is a pain overall, and 
better avoided by using intelligent static mounts.

	Otherwise, with the other comments on this thread regarding 
Mailman's intelligent design for handling other typical NFS problem 
areas, it sounds like you may be reasonably safe.
