Hi Gregory,

Yes, now I remember. It's not an export issue but a local root issue. The 
oss, as well as the rest of the system, can only apply a single local root 
(by definition there can only be a single root). The way to get around this 
problem is to:

a) Determine what local root you wish to use (e.g., /x/y).
b) Create a directory in "/" of /x/y
c) Symlink all the directories from this directory using "root" names of 
your choosing.

Users would then specify the path less "/x/y" and would be directed to the 
appropriate filesystem via the symlink. Does this make sense? Will it work 
in your setup?
