I've not been able to repeat this problem on the same hardware
using NetBSD-2.0 (with a NetBSD-1.6.2 NFS server). I am not
able to recreate the exact setting though, because:
1. NFS over UDP/IPv6 does not work at all due to problems with
reassembly of packets (I think this is known and fixed if I
remember from scanning current-users).
2. The network I use to test is a 3Mbs long-distance wavelan,
and much slower than the original setting (100Mbs). So, if
speed/bandwidth (resource consumption) triggers the problem
I might not see it now.
I think it is ok to close this PR. I plan to start using NFS over
IPV6 actively again soon with a variety of hardware and NetBSD
versions, and can file new PR's when I do encounter problems.
