is there any known issues with NFS (client) and NetBSD/Cardbus ?

I plugged a 3c575B-TX (ex0 at cardbus0 dev 0 function 0: 3Com 3c575B-TX
Ethernet) and now, browsing on a NFS mounted (from OpenBSD/sparc64) dir
freeze the process (ls or cd depending on the test...)

The NFS server works perfectly when I'm using the internel Realtek card
(rtk0 at pci2 dev 6 function 0: Realtek 8139 10/100BaseTX).

ifconfig seems to be OK :
        address: 00:50:04:c8:a4:1a
        media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX full-duplex)
        status: active
        inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast
        inet6 fe80::250:4ff:fec8:a41a%ex0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0xa

nothing in dmesg (neither the laptop not the server)

I started an iso download before mounting the NFS dir.
When the ls (on the NFS mounted part) freezed, the FTP download still
continued (like dns, ssh, www still were working too).
The mounted options are "rw,soft,noauto"

anyone has ideas about what could happen ?
thanks for any ideas,
