:So mmap is just a more "reliable" way to trigger this problem, right?
:Is not this, like, a major bug? A file can be opened, written to for a while, 
:and then -- at a semi-random moment -- the log will drop across the road? 
:Thanks a lot to all concerned for helping solve this problem. Yours,

    I consider it a bug.  I think the only way to reliably fix the problem
    is to give the client the ability to specify the uid to issue RPCs with
    in the NFS mount command, to match what the export does.
