    Interesting... We experience no such errors what-so-ever with our
    AIX-machines (we have installed virtually every existing recommended
    patch, though.)

    The only problems we ever experience is with AIX nfsd <-> Linux nfs v2.
    Before, we also experienced the same problem with SunOS (Solaris) nfsd <->
    Linux nfs v2, but after a patch from Sun, this problem disappeared.
    Exactly the same pattern of error, though.
