With appreciated help of Chuck Silvers, the problem could be isolated
into the NQNFS code (i.e. when using the -q switch to mount_nfs).  The
crashes indeed stopped to occur since I stopped using this feature.  I
will probably fill in a PR about this, the feature should probably at
least be marked experimental/bogus in 2.1 if the problem couldn't be
fixed since then...
