You're welcome.

I've tried the same entry in "/etc/fstab" (without "exec" but that
shouldn't make a difference) on lucid, maverick, sid, constantine, and
laughlin. The nfs share showed up in the "Places" menu (under the name
of the mount point) without even using "Disk Mounter".

can you mount the share at the cli?

Please post "cat /etc/exports" run on the nfs server.
