Confirmed for a combined server (jessie) and clients in a VirtualBox 
test environment.

I was able log in after disabling the nscd netgroup cache using these 
steps (on tjener):

service nscd stop
rm /var/cache/nscd/netgroup 
sed -i '/netgroup/ s/yes/no/' /etc/nscd.conf 
service nscd start
service nslcd restart
service nfs-kernel-server restart

Please consider to test the workaround.
