As you say, the file system an NFS server uses shouldn't matter. OTOH, I
believe ZFS has some hooks into the kernel NFS server code, but I don't
know what they do and how they work. What I can say is that I have
programs that have had data from ZFS+NFS exports running for days at a
time without seeing this.

What version of Ubuntu are you running? Are you using the zfs-native
PPA? If so, I believe there are both stable and a more experimental
version of that PPA, have you tried using the experimental (latest)

I suggest you try asking on #zfsonlinux on Freenode, those people
really know their stuff. You can also try #ubuntu-server, as a lot of
the regular users there are using ZFS. Alternatively, try the ZoL
mailing list if you are more comfortable with that.
