Gee, I've been running for a year now, albeit in an NFS environment where there 
are only four machines, 3 AIX (A master where the files are resident and 2 other 
machines as NFS clients...a mailing list server (which can write heavily to the 
mounts) and a login server (which writes lightly if at all)) and one Linux 
Fedora (reading only).  I only use fcntl locks and no caching on the clients.
Knock on wood, but we've had no corruption
