The policy apparently does not allow exporting an NTFS filesystem over
NFS.  I can't see any obvious reason for this choice, but maybe there
is something I miss.  Is this intentional, or is it a mistake?  Or in
other words, should I bugzilla or only figure out how to change it for

The error message I get trying to export an NTFS fileystem is included
below.  (If I go into permissive mode everything works as expected.)
