[Bug 337887] [NEW] NFS lockd: server not responding

Public bug reported:

The same problem and description as bug #181996 : 
NFS clients mount home directories from the server.
Works fine for a while after reboot, but at some moment (30 minutes to several days after last reboot) client applications (firefox, thunderbird, openoffice, ...) would freeze at start and the following error message can be seen in the attached dmesg.

The nfsd, rpc.statd, rpc.mountd processes keep running on server. No
relevant errors can be found in server syslog.

Restarting the nfs-kernel-server (on server) and nfs-common (on both
server and client) would not help - the problem persists.

The only way to make it work is to reboot the server, but only for a
moment before it goes bad again.
