This is probably the problem, the 3c503 is crap (I have dealt with them under
a zillion different un*x's them...) it will hang if it gets too many packets
right in a row...  (due to running out of on card buffers...)

The ussual solution is to run nfs with lower transfer sizes...
(ie 4k instead of 8k(do rsize=4096,wszie=4096)) but someone seems to have
broken/turned the nfs options off on NetBSD 1.0...
