Looks like I don't need to submit a bug report :-)
I tried the patch and by ignoring deletion of the .nfs files, the branch
completes satisfactorily, so this is certainly a workaround.

Certainly they should go away when the process that holds an open on the
deleted file goes away. However, I would suggest it would be a good
idea to find what the problem is.
I wonder if the following gives any useful hints:

Is process 10367 a candidate for a process getting a handle on files
