I do the same by mounting my remote F8 home on my F9 laptop.  I 
regularly have to remount the nfs stuff as they get hung.  It really 
hangs up Thunderbird as my Lightning Extension writes to my calendar 
file across nfs, and when it hangs, all of Thunderbird hangs with it 
waiting for the timeouts and retries to finish.  The funny thing is the 
remount clears it right up, no waiting.
