Depending on what the NFS server is running, you may simply have an  
NFS locking problem.

I've found that with a NetBSD server, for example, it's best to simply  
disable NFS locking because it simply doesn't work properly.  I do  
this by doing the mount manually on OS X with the following command:

	mount -o -P,-i,tcp,nolock nfs_server_name:/nfs_fs /mount_point

There's probably a way to put the "nolock" option (and any others you  
need) into some config file or control panel for the automounter, but  
I hate the automounter so I don't ever use it.
