Do they also share the same device number?  Otherwise that looks pretty

Yes they do share the same device number, and I have seen at least one
utility fail -- I think it was diff on OSF1/Digital Unix, which assumed
that files with the same inode were identical.

I'll try to get some info from Network Appliance.  In the meantime, you
