Interesting.  I posted a message today about .depend corruption in -current.
(Both machines involved run -current.)  NFS may have been broken for ages.
Check -current for a full description of how my setup fails.

BTW, I use hard mounts, not soft.  It's a bad idea to use soft except with
read-only mounts.
