I guess we are off scope, but I don't think it matters - we're trying to resolve
you problem, right?

First, the real reason why I don't like the patch. A quick search through Tomcat
sources reveals that the method lastModified() gets called in a number of
different places, from different code and always relies on the fact that the
timestamp of the file has changed (correctly). So, you would potentially be
fixing a lot more instances. And then there is of course Ant, Velocity and other
Jakarta software that would have to do the same to satisfy a buggy piece of
software. Sometimes that's the only option (for instance a buggy ZIP
implementation in JDK, screwing class reloads from .jar files) since it is core
part of the system and cannot be avoided. But this scenario isn't one of those
things (although I appreciate that it is important to you).

In solution to your problem, why not have the home directories on a Linux box -
then you can have a decent SMB and NFS on the same machine. I have searched the
web for smbfs + autofs and even found a HOWTO. I agree when you say that it is
an unproven concept, but so is Microsoft NFS.
