I have a problem with 'mount' between versions 2.11x and 2.12. Under 2.11x,
this command worked just fine:
mount -o port=3049,intr localhost:/null /crypt
However, with the 2.12 version of mount, the command hangs and never returns.

is hanging at the "mount" call. Also, under 2.12, I do see entries
in /var/log/messages indicating that a successful request was made to

However, in another window, the "mount" command by itself does not show the
All other NFS exporting/importing operations work just fine. The difference

I've downloaded the util-linux sources but so far cannot find a change that
would effect this behavior.
In case you are wondering what brought all of this about, I am trying to get
my cryptographic file system (CFS by Matt Blaze) working under SuSE 9.1. I
found a version of /bin/mount from another Linux system, and using that, I
can access my files, but I really want to know why version 2.12 of util-linux
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
