Indeed it does :-(

No, it would not be.

Have you considered using Coda instead of NFS? Mind you, Coda is
broken slightly in recent -current's and it is an experimental file
system but it does allow you to suspend and resume without side
effects, even disconnect the laptop from the network and have your
working set still avaliable.
