mountd acting strangely

Maybe someone can shed some light on this one for me.  I'm using 
FreeBSD as the nfs server and Mac OS X (10.3.2) as the client.  If I 
boot the FreeBSD box, then I am unable to mount from my Mac.  However 
if I simply restart mountd on the server then the client can perform 
the mount.

It is not a fluke thing, it is repeatable, i.e. reboot the server.
