Thanks, I hadn't known about that command.  Funny how NFS-relevant 
commands and files seem to be everywhere.

The only hints the output gave me was:

1. I'm using v3.  Is that ok?  Does v3 support locking or are all the net 
references talkinga bout v4?  I recall I'm using v3 because it has better 
recovery characteristics because it's UDP.

2. The v4 sections of nfsstat output show locking parameters, but v3 does 
not?  Maybe time to try switching up to v4.  Doesn't explain why my 
loopback tests worked (with locking), when they must have been v3!  What 
version does everyone else use?
