The first thing I would do is login to an account w/o any startup script
commands, e.g. biff, setting permission on the tty, umask changes. If
you still get the message I would consider starting a login shell of
your new, clean account under stace with the follow child PIDs option,
and output each child's syscall messages to its own soandso.PID file.
You can use *grep to figure out where that output is coming from.

I doubt that you have a kernel problem but I suppose it is feasable. It
would be better to check other options first. Incidentally I am running
2.4.20 on my home NFS server and have no similar problems. I have not
upgraded to 2.4.20 on any of my NFS clients yet.
