Unfortunately, I have the same exact problem.  Fortunately, I stumbled
onto a quick fix in a moment of trying random things.  When this
problem occurs, drop to ddb and type "call nfs_init".  It should print
some numbers.  Then do a "c".  If yours is like mine, everything will
be working again.

Unfortunately, I have no idea what is wrong.  It seems to be related
to dynamic linking.

I am also using Linux to serve NFS.  I believe that's part of it somehow.
