Clear out phantom NFS shares
Authored by: emendelson on Jul 23, '12 11:27:56AM

Adding a comment on my own hint. I had a clone of this system on a second Mac, and the clone had the same phantom share, causing the same problems in Find any File and Yasu. On experimenting with this second system, I found that I did NOT need to boot into single-user mode to get rid of the relevant file; I was able to delete it with "sudo rm" in the terminal. After rebooting, I was able to "rmdir" the hidden directory, and the problem went away on that second system, just as it did on the first.
