| Is this perhaps NFS related?
No. I havenīt even compiled NFS in my kernel. So it canīt be NFS.
My filesystems are local and behave like that.
BTW: I have seen zombie processes sticking around on my system
which donīt get killed and I saw it hanging with vnlocks. Perhaps
those things are related? I couldnīt come up with enpugh data for
a solid PR yet though...
