Well, since my cwd at the time is /net/kjc386, I fully expect "ls c:" to
generate NFS traffic, because (through the autofs stuff) its trying to
access "kjc386:/c:" which is one of the exported directories from the
server kjc386.  Did I misinterpret what you were trying to say?

I know what you are trying to say, and this naming convention that I
have been using for years now, has only tripped up emacs's readdir stuff
in the past, never ls.  I suppose I could try changing the directories
mount point from "c:" to "c" and see if that helps....
