 I've seen it wait long periods of time doing "ls /" when the root

 machines which are no longer running or having problems.
Similarly, I had a symbolic link in my home directory to a nonexistent
file under autofs's /misc directory.  Anything that tried to access my
home directory froze.  Very frustrating, though running an ls under
strace helped pinpoint the problem.  (I don't know why referring to a
nonexistent file under /misc would suddenly and out of the blue cause
it to hang, that's another issue....)


Here's what I'm not quite getting with all this. I can ls in certain
directories with hardlinks (I'm using rsnapshot to backup our servers to
the SAN) and the parent of one directory I can ls just fine(say backup),
I cd into the only child in the directory( cd bak/, so now pwd shows
'backup/bak/') and do an ls there and it hangs so badly I can't kill the
process and the ssh session locks up).
