This was originally posted in the wrong newsgroup. My bad.

Someone replied to my original post and said this:

"It's a bug in NSS on Linux, and is under investigation. Don't delete
them as real info may be lost. There are other posts about that in the
OES/linux forums, IIRC."

I started looking through the posts in this forum, but doing a search
for ":" kinda kills Thunderbird :)

I also did a Google search of Novell's site, but once again, ":" isn't a
good term to use in queries.

Can someone please point me in the right direction?

On at least two volumes on two OES Linux servers, we have discovered a
folder named ":" which appears to be a mirror of all files and folders
in the root of the volume.

I am a little nervous about just deleting it since I don't know why it
is there in the first place.

Anyone see this before or have any ideas why this might be there?
