Please try remounting your nfs-shared directories on the client end
with the "-o actimeo=0" option and see if that fixes the problem.

I think the issue may be related to nfs file attribute caching on the
client end.  Using actimeo=0 on my system got rid of a lot of warnings
about prebuffering that I was seeing when trying to watch LiveTV on
my system with a dedicated NFS server and dedicated frontends.
