nfs export problems

im using nfs version 3 to export data of several raids over the network. the
raids are attached to different server which are running ubuntu 10.04. the
exported raids are using xfs as filesystem.
On one server occurs a random freeze of the nfsd. if this happens, the
exported raid is not accessable over the network anymore. if a user wants to
open the directory with his shell, the shell freezes.

i haven't found any known bugs or problems, which fit to this problem. do
you have any suggestions oder maybe a known fix of this problem?

thanks in advance and regards,
