rpc.lockd / rpc.statd were set up and were running on both client and 
server. And it had been working before.

Well the actual problem was, that on the server the processes were still 
there, but the lockd didn't work anymore. After restarting the lockd 
there everything worked again. Thanx for the pointer!

Now we start going for the rest of all the strange things :-)
