No answer from me but perhaps a workaround.
thing.foo.com:/usr /thing nfs rw,-r8192,-w8192,noauto 0 0
Does that stabilize it for you? I found that after moving to 2.0 on my
server I was having the same problem. That fixed it.
More clues - I got that fix from a discussion a year ago when I had the
same problem connecting to a NetApp from NetBSD 1.6. This suggests to
me that the actual problem is in the client code. I'm afraid it all
gets a little foggy for me at that point but perhaps this is a useful
datapoint for someone.
