Right. It would appear something is going very wrong, then :)

Has there been any progress on this negotiation issue?  We (myself and
coworkers) have seen this issue on 2.6.15 w/ nbd 2.8.4.  I didn't see
anything in svn that spoke to progress on this issue but please let me
know if there has been since Gaurav originally reported it.

BTW, I think we can safely eliminate concern about selinux, iptables,
etc blocking the negotiation as nbd will negotiate if the server and
the client are restarted again.  It almost feels like the server is
wedged and therefore the client can't negotiate.  We'll be digging
deeper but let me know if you have any insight on zeroing in on this.
