      This is related to ACT149.

      This could be reproduced on Debian Linux (stable and testing).


      1) the locale is fr_FR.UTF8
      2) one file in the export contains non ASCII characters like French accents

      the reading of the directory fails with those symptoms:
      a) is the shell:
      root@amadon:/nfs# ls
      ls: lecture du répertoire .: Erreur d'entrée/sortie

      b) in the logs:
      tail /var/log/syslog
      Jan 18 09:53:45 amadon kernel: NFS: giant filename in readdir (len d0716fcf)!

      How to reproduce it?
      To reproduce this issue,

      A) you need to bootstrap alfresco (first alfresco start) in the locale above.
      There are two ways in doing this:
      1) in catalina.sh set
      CATALINA_OPTS="-Duser.language=fr -Duser.country=FR"
      2) in the shell
      export LC_ALL=fr_FR.UTF8
      export LANG=fr_FR.UTF8

      you need to check that the system accepted the locale OK using the locale command:

      (to make this work I had to install a debian package called locales-all)

      B) start alfresco with the alfresco portmapper
      i.e. in shared/classes/alfresco/extension/file-servers-custom.xml
      insert thye section below:

      <config evaluator="string-compare" condition="NFS Server" replace="true">
            <serverEnable enabled="true"/>
                  <user name="admin" uid="0" gid="0"/>
            <debug flags="RxData,TxData,DumpData,Search,Info,File,FileIO,Error,Directory,Timing,Session"/>

      C) check the locale is take by the server by looking for sentences in French in the logs:

      D) create a document which name contains accents like this one: cetétélà
      (I created in company home)

      E) check the NFS server is running:

      root@amadon:/opt/alfresco211nfs3/tomcat/bin# showmount -e
      Export list for amadon:
      /Alfresco (everyone)
      /AVM (everyone)

      root@amadon:/opt/alfresco211nfs3/tomcat/bin# rpcinfo -p
         program no_version protocole no_port
          100000 2 tcp 111 portmapper
          100000 2 udp 111 portmapper
          100005 1 tcp 60359 mountd
          100005 1 udp 32797 mountd
          100003 3 tcp 511 nfs
          100003 3 udp 511 nfs
          100005 3 tcp 60359 mountd
          100005 3 udp 32797 mountd

      F) mount the Alfresco export:
      mkdir /nfs
      mount -t nfs -o nolock /nfs

      G) observe the bug:

      root@amadon:/opt/alfresco211nfs3/tomcat/bin# ls /nfs
      ls: lecture du répertoire /nfs: Erreur d'entrée/sortie

      tail /var/log/syslog

      Jan 18 09:53:45 amadon kernel: NFS: giant filename in readdir (len d0716fcf)!


      when the locale is en_GB.UTF8 the mount can be read but all accents are replaced by question marks.
      It seems that nfsv3 does not allow non 7 bit characters in file names.
