  System hangs when copying to NFS mounts

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in linux-source-2.6.17 package in Ubuntu:
  Won't Fix

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: linux-source-2.6.17

  After I upgraded from dapper to edgy, I noticed that the system froze
  partially or completely when copying large files (more than 50-100 MB)
  to my NFS mounts.

  I had this problem on two different computers accessing the same NFS
  server on a third computer which still runs on dapper. I checked the
  server and client settings time and again and upgraded to NFSv4, but
  the problem persisted. I also checked that the network was OK,
  uploading large files to the computer with the NFS server by using scp
  with no problem at all.

  I thought that the problem had to be the NFS driver in the kernel, so
  I reinstalled dapper kernel 2.6.15-27-k7 with the corresponding
  restricted modules, and now the problem has ceased: my NFS mounts work
  as they did before the upgrade to edgy.
