We were using the defaults, apparently 1024 on 2.0.* kernels.

The problem went away after I did the following:

  1) moved the /admin/ directory exported from 2.0.35 to a
     machine running 2.1.122
  2) specified wsize,rsize across the board on all machines, remounted

The machine now exporting the admin directory is running a new
debian slink install.  There is therefore a whole slew of differences
so I can't say we pinned it down absolutely.

Thank You,
