The only thing in exports is "/home -network" so
whatever the defaults are.

One thing I know is that root has no special privileges on the mounted
drive.  To make any changes you have to be the file owner or make the
changes on the server.  However, thunderbird is not setuid root so I see
no reason for that to matter.

As for lockd I see no options that might affect anything.

I have set -t on the nfsd command but I couldn't get NFS working without
that.  I am going to try again without that.
