In message <>, you write: 

-> I think the NFS code shouldn't get back EADDRINUSE from the network layer.
-> This means there's a problem somewhere, maybe out of the NFS code.

Yeah, it does seem sort-of wrong that this error is returned; the worst
thing is that the NFS code treats it as a non-fatal error, clears it and
then gets the same error again in an endless loop.
