Description of problem:
When using Nautilus to browse an NFS mounted folder no write permissions are
given knowing that my regular user account has rwx permissions; it works fine
through a console/terminal. Nautilus will not allow me to modify or create
files/directories in the locally mounted NFS folder unless I launch Nautilus as

The NFS server is an RH 7.3, kernel-2.4.18-26.7.x, nfs-utils-0.3.3-5.
The client is an RH 8.0, kernel-2.4.18-26.8.0

The NFS share is configured with:
/path/to/dir ip.of.client(rw,all_squash,anonuid=0,anongid=0)
mounted on the client with:
ip.of.server:/path/to/dir /mnt/nfs     nfs     rw,hard,intr    0 0

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. mount nfs share
2. browse to /mnt/nfs with Nautilus
3. try to edit a file or create a new folder

Actual Results:  No rw permissions in Nautilus

Expected Results:  rw permissions should be given to regular user
