I experienced this same problem with 2.4.0-test9-pre4. The NFS
server was a stock Red Hat 6.0 box running 2.2.5.

My workstation is running Linux-Mandrake 7.2 beta 2 with patched
for ReiserFS 3.6.16, with all partitions formatted with ReiserFS 3.5.24.

When I tried to save a StarOffice 5.2 file in .doc format to the NFS server,
the workstation hung and did not respond for 10 minutes. I could not telnet
to it, but it did respond to pings. I had to hit the big switch. Afterwards,
the only lines in /var/log/messages (at the time of the problem) were:

Sep 19 13:11:27 spc kernel: NFS: NFSv3 not supported.
Sep 19 13:11:27 spc kernel: nfs warning: mount version older than kernel

I experienced some file corruption. StarOffice would not run after reboot,
complaining about missing configuration files.

I hope this helps,
