On my 2.0.17 installation, all NFS mounts will hang after a
while. I use amd-upl102 for automounting, but when the NFS freezes,
I cannot even mount new nfs drives manually (mounting works, but I
cannot access any files: ls just hangs). telnet and YP continue to
work fine. I had an old amd which was logged with broken flock, so
I recompiled amd to be sure; the problem persists. When going back
to 2.0.15, I don't see this problem. If there is anything I should
check, please let me know.

I think this will be fixed in 2.0.18
