[svlug] Linux + NFS + JBuilder

I have a new Linux box ( Dell650N + RH9 ) I'm trying
to integrate
into the office computing environment.
In short my HOME directory is served via NFS from an
For reasons best known to himself and in contravention
to what
I learned in SGI NEtwork class many years ago, our
ex-SA had
the NFS stuff automounting. 
My understanding of automount is that it ought to be
for things you aren't hitting with any frequency ie:
not HOME.

Specifically my problem is with file/project open
dialogs in JBuilder.

Anyhow, what happens when I try to open an existing
project is
that the open dialog shows:


When I click on the other directories under /user (
hishome, etc )
I get more subdirectories as expected.
When I click on "myhome", the "+" goes away and I get
or it shows up as "myhome" ( no "+" ).
Only way I can get to files is to enter the fully
qualified path,
for instance to open the "javathing" project.

Any ideas what might be the problem?

We tried going to a regular NFS mount but that didn't
change the situation.

I have a gut feeling this may be a Java issue rather
than specific to
JBuilder itself.
