I already know it happens, and that IBM has gotten NFS corruption due
to this problem.

Frankengrams can be fun :)

Using NFS over UDP is stupid.

I find it ironic to claim that folks are "stuck with UDP over NFS" but
were able to upgrade their networking technology to gigabit.

It would seem new NIC drivers ship more easily than new NFS/OS bits in some 
places.
