I've been through the init scripts looking for the actual call to mount (so I
could work upwards and find out what is wrong)...but I can't find it.

Manual mounting once it's running works fine, so as a temporary hack I've just
put mount -a in my rc.local, but I'd like to find the real problem(s?).

Any ideas?

I've got the same a couple of days ago when I updated nfs-common package (sid).

I tried the hint from the startup messages (see above) and modified my /etc/fstab adding nolock option, ie:	/mnt/my_shared	nfs	defaults,nolock	0	0

It helped in my case.

Kind regards,
