Does it make sense to use dsync on NT. If so are there performance issues
to be aware of?

I understand (from documentation I think it was) that dsync doesn't
have any effect on NT, but applies to Unix only (and there it may
behave platform-dependant as well; allegedly it leads to synchronous
I/O on one Unix latform -- I forgot which one).
