I'm tilting toward yes, but can not really confirm until the problems comes
back again.

That's the idea of what I thought up.  Storing NX session on local drive
then on the nfs server.  Creating symlinks for all users all the time might
be too much of a trouble???  Unless there is an option in nxserver to
redirect all users to /var/tmp.   

Where do I go to create a feature request?  In a way its already there if
its possible to put all those sessions in /var/lib/nxserver/ dir with
another dir created called "nxusers."

drwx------    2 nx       root        20480 Feb 23 17:25 closed
drwx------    2 nx       root         4096 Feb 23 16:05 failed
drwx------    3 nx       root         4096 Jan 29 01:17 nxhome
drwx------    2 nx       root         4096 Feb 23 18:04 running

Just looking into these dirs tell me nx saves all its sessions or most
recent ones???
