Ok, this fixed the lock up problem.

TMPFS is nice (I'm using it for /tmp on all my machines now) but I still
haven't found any way to export it over NFS and am about convinced it's not
possible for some internal reason or other.

The RAM disk certainly has problems depending on which kernel version I
use.  2.4.9 doesn't seem to work at all and 2.4.12 still doesn't work, but
breaks in different ways.
