That's very strange: those directory names are created as a hash of the
clientid that the client sends in setclientid.

Hm, but the linux client generates those using its idea of its IP and
the server's IP, and maybe those both end up being the same for all your
clients.  Giving each client mount command a distinct cilentaddr= option
might help?

And I also wonder if the server's doing the right thing here--could be
it should be returning a clientid_inuse error to most of the clients
instead of whatever it's currently doing (probably assuming it has one
client that's rebooting continually)--but it may be hard for it to tell
the difference.
