  Not to point fingers without looking at recent source code :),
but last time I looked at the Linux NFS stuff (>1 year ago),
they had some kind of pseudo-v3 hack that just treated everything like
v2 requests, IIRC.  So I think the problem is likely Linux-based,
as is usually true with NFS problems.  :(
