I see the same problem with our student labs every now and then. I
always assumed it was caused by a student power recycling the client
rather than doing a clean reboot to get to Windoze ( dual boot
machines ;-( ) causing NFS to get confused, NFSv3.

It doesn't seem to cause any problems just fills up the server logs
with useless messages. Rebooting the client to Linux usually fixes the
problem.
