No worries - there's nothing worse than seeing your exact problem on a list, 
but no solution.

Hm, let's see...

'Make sure NFS lockd is running on the client, or mount the NFS export which 
contains /usr with the 'nolock' option.

If /usr gets mounted from an initrd, check 'ps' output once the system is 
fully booted to ensure that you see a [lockd] kernel process, or an 
'rpc.lockd' userspace process. 

If not, just issue your mount command again (no need to even -o remount it 
seems!) and run /etc/init.d/nfs-common restart.
