I had an issue when upgrading one of my frontends from 8.10 to 9.04.  The
network upgrade failed (with an error message about nfs).  I mucked around
for a while - but in the end just wiped the HDD and installed Jaunty from
scratch using a CD.  It didn't bother me too much reinstalling - being a
frontend I was up and running in a hour or so.  I copied back my backed-up
fstab and everything, including nfs mounts, worked fine.  I tend to leave
this particular frontend on 24x7 and it 's rock-solid and has never dropped
a nfs mount.

So - my experience was the upgrade process breaking something, and nothing
inherent in the kernel shipping with Jaunty.
