LTSP boot with NFS rather than NBD

I would like to boot my clients from NFS rather than NBD, because that
way I don't have to reboot them periodically to ensure that they are
receiving software upgrades (I guess it's a bad idea to update the
squashfs image while it's in use).

Unfortunately, I always run into bug #485709: booting stops with

| One or more of the mounts listed in /etc/fstab cannot yet be mounted:
| /: waiting for
| /tmp: waiting for (null)
| Press ESC to enter a recovery shell
| (xxx. etc is the correct NFS server ip)

Has anyone else encountered this problem and managed to solve or work
around it?
