An update to this, when I tried to start and stop mountd by hand, I got
an error from mountd saying it couldn't export the mount point when I had
/mnt/oldhome 192.168.1.2 192.168.1.3
but not when I changed the line to:
/mnt 192.168.1.2 192.168.1.3
Also, everytime I got that error there was a kernel message generated
about ext2fs not supporting the old mount system call so I think the
problem is definitely in the ext2 filesystem code. Is this a bug or
just a feature not supported by the ext2 filesystem. If it's just a
bug, is there any way around it?

I sense much NT in you.
NT leads to Bluescreen.
Bluescreen leads to downtime.
Downtime leads to suffering.
NT is the path to the darkside.
Powerful Unix is.
