 i guess your /long and /longer are both on /?  this isn't how NFS works.
 see, eg from exports(5):
      space.  The second is to specify the pathname of the root of the filesys-
      tem followed by the -alldirs flag; this form allows the host(s) to mount
      at any point within the filesystem, including regular files.  Note that
      the -alldirs option should not be used as a security measure to make
      clients mount only those subdirectories that they should have access to.
      A client can still access the whole filesystem via individual RPCs if it
      wanted to, even if just one subdirectory has been mounted.  The pathnames
 you can really only apply exports across an actual filesystem.
