[ubuntu-uk] Mounting NFS shares permanently

Friends >>> I've been going round in circles with this, finding some old
bug reports that may be related, but no answers at all.
I mount NFS shares (served by a ReadyNAS) on my Ubuntu clients - all
five of which were, till recently, running 10.04. As a means of getting
familiar with Unity, etc, I recently put 12.04 on to one machine. (A
clean install, as the attempted upgrade a few weeks ago failed.)
Today, I got round to setting up the NFS shares on this 12.04 system in
my usual way: create mount points in /media; install portmap and
nfs-common; lockdown portmap; add the shares to fstab.
Of course, I discovered at once that portmap is deprecated, and rpcbind
installed instead. So for the lockdown, I simply added "rpcbind : ALL"
to /etc/hosts.deny, and "rpcbind : NFS server IP address" to
/etc/hosts.allow. Otherwise, everything corresponds with what is
working under 10.04 on the other four machines.
But... the shares on the 12.04 machine don't mount at start up. And
when I do 'sudo mount -a' I get, for each of the shares,
mount.nfs: rpc.statd is not running but is required for remote locking.
mount.nfs: Either use '-o nolock' to keep locks local, or start statd.
mount.nfs: an incorrect mount option was specified
Of course, when I do 'sudo start statd' I get
start: Job is already running: statd
Has anyone solved this issue? How do I get rpc.statd to start on boot?
(I should say that while I know enough to be able to follow a HowTo,
that's about as far as my skills go - so troubleshooting this for myself
is a bit of a nightmare!)
Any help will be most gratefully received!
