I decided to check out your idea anyways today, and it appears you were
right.  I disabled and stopped all NFS and rpc processes and those extra
ports disappeared from the netstat listing.  None of those ports are
listed as related to anything, so I don't know what is going on.  I had
just experimented with NFS for a while, so I will just leave it off.

Thanks for your suggestion.
