I'm not sure what's wrong here, but FWIW your second box looks similar
to what I'm running in my setup. My /usr is device 03:02, and I'm
exporting /usr/nfstest, which is the /nfstest directory of the /usr

This sounds like a configuration problem of some sort, so maybe some
other NFS users will have an idea of what's wrong.
