Re: tidy across NFS filesystem

We don't currently tidy any NFS filesystems here, but I thought I'd
give this a try on my workstation.  My home dir lives on a NetApp NFS
mount.  My workstation is explicitly listed as having rw access to this
volume in the exports file on the filer.  Could this be what you're 
missing?  Running the tidy on a box with rw or root access to the volume

I touched a couple files under ~/tmp and added a tidy statement.  The
2 files were cleaned up as expected.  1.6.3 btw.
