[Gluster-users] Editing text files on NFS mounted volumes

Hello list-
I have a strange problem opening text files on NFS mounted volumes with 
certain text editors.  With nedit and gedit I get the error "Could not 
open file" or similar, and kwrite just show an empty file.  Other 
editors such as emacs, vi, mousepad (XFCE4 desktop) and kedit (simple 
KDE editor) work fine.  The problem is that nedit, gedit and kwrite are 
the ones most people want to use.  None of the editors have any problems 
opening files on native GlusterFS mounts, but I only use the GlusterFS 
client on our compute servers and I don't want to have to install it on 
all the office PCs.  Does anybody know why this problem occurs with NFS 
or how to stop it?
