Word Perfect Office 2000 Deluxe, retail edition.  The one that comes with
the little stuffed penguin beanie.

Umm.. 3.3.6, I believe.  It's whatever version is the default for Debian

It works great if I don't have my /home partition mounted off of
NFS.  And, I've hacked a workaround: I've symlinked the .wpo2000/ and
.corel/ directories in my NFS mounted home directory to places on a local
filesystem, and it works.

My assertion was that this was the result of defective programming.  From
what I heard, this was done intentionally because of some "security
flaw" with either WINE or Linux's socket code.  This should have not been
an issue: NFS imported /home is not, by any strech of the imagination,
