I have not been tough enough to even try 6.x on our busy NFS servers  
yet, so I did not know this problem existed. This is what you get for  
not taking the time to test future releases I guess :-/

I will put RELENG_6 with this patch on one of them next week and  
report back ASAP!

Does anyone have a test-case that will provoke the problem at will,  
so I can make some tests in a controlled environment before I put it  
out in the wild?
