 For clarity's sake:
 I assume you read the manual page and noticed this;
      -L      Do not forward fcntl(2) locks over the wire.  All locks will be
              local and not seen by the server and likewise not seen by other
              NFS clients.  This removes the need to run the rpcbind(8)
              and the rpc.statd(8) and rpc.lockd(8) servers on the client.
              Note that this option will only be honored when performing the
              initial mount, it will be silently ignored if used while
              the mount options.
 Which results in the question: do you have rpc.statd and rpc.lockd running
 on the machine?
 I copied in Doug Rabson, who did a lot of work on NFS recently and might
 have more information wrt. Locking etc. (or not, then I was mistaken).
 thanks for sending the info and taking the time to report this! It's
