I've posted a 3.8.21b1 to my experimental directory for testing.

I can't quite yet post it for regular usage because I need to cross  
check any changes against the squeakvm.org SVN tree, however that site  
is dead
at the moment, awaiting it's recovery...

Still people can download and confirm the NFS lockup problem has gone  
away, and there are no sporadic write failures.
