Is this "any packet" or only NFS traffic ?
I've seen this as well, but only NFS was wedged (I guess because it keep
retransmitting the packet which triggers the bug); other traffic (ping,
ssh, etc ...) are fine.

BTW, my machine was NFS client, not server. Maybe you run out of mbuf after
some time ?
