Given the lack of response here, I'll assume that there isn't an easy  
to to turn it off.

Barring that, is there a way to kill the 'file' server on the slave  
(which is just a proxy-process, that passes its messages to the 'file'  
server on the master), and ask it to re-create a new non-proxied server?
