Next try:
I have now in addition to the /backup and /mnt reiserfs exports created another
ext2 export. First test case:
mount /backup, mount the ext2 fs on /test, then mount /mnt, do i/o on /mnt and
umount /mnt.
After that everything works! /test works _and_ /backup works!

Second test case: (server and client have several network cards, so I can mount
on other ips as well)
mount /backup, mount /mnt on ip1, mount /test on ip2 (from same server). do i/o
on /mnt and umount /mnt.
After that /test works, but/backup is stale.

Conclusion: reiserfs has a problem being nfs-mounted as the only fs to a
client. If you add another fs (here ext2) mount, then even reiserfs is happy.
The problem is originated at the server side.

Any ideas for a fix?

Regards,
Stephan
