'Negotiation Error:' is one of the possible messages from the nbd client 
so I think you are on the right track.  Are any there any messages 
logged server-side to show if you've run out of resources (maybe in 
/var/log/messages)?  Does a 'df' show a partition out of space when you 
get to this point?  Maybe there is a process number limit for the user 
running on the server side.
