    I have previously reported a similar problem,
    reproduceable with a single machine:

    mount localhost:/ /x
    dd if=/dev/zero of=/junk bs=1024k count=200
    diff junk /x/junk

    This often (not always) fails with *differences* on the "diff".
    Happens with userland NFS only; not (yet) with knfsd.

    The system is a P2-450Mhz with 128MB and *very fast*
    raid0 (18-20MByte/sec) disk I/O.
