Do you s'pose that fsirand might be causing the problems?
(shooting at straws, grasping at the dark).
You might try it on a smaller filesystem and see what happens.
Incidentally, do you have a reason you need to run fsirand? (Typically
it's only necessary in a potentially sorta-hostile environment (full-on
hostile environments will probably not want to use NFS at all)).
I somehow don't think it's the problem, but I've been right once or twice
before on hunches, so I figure it's worth a shot.
