   What happens when you increase the NFS timeout? I've noticed that the
timeout is calculated a bit low and heavy disk activity on the server can
sometimes cause the "not responding" messages to come out, even when there
isn't a real problem. I think the default timeout value that is calculated
in the kernel is actually bogusly low in some versions of FreeBSD, but I
could be wrong about that.
