I'd like to add that different platforms handle file serving with varying
competence. If the server process loses its connection to the open database
file on a file server there will be varying ability to recover quickly
and/or reliably. Eveen if the server tries to re-establish a lost
connection it may take some time for the file server to clear the state of
the database file(s). Netware is pretty good with this but other file
servers may not be.

Just another reason why this operating mode can be problematic.
