I got the same buffer locking problems using only Linux machines
on a SGI NFS file server.

this even can happen if all clients use *different* buffer files,
but you're running two clients on a dual-PPro Linux-2.0.30-SMP box
(again: *separate* files for both clients) if there are not enough
CPU time slots for both clients because other programs are running too.

finally my "solution" was to run only only client even on SMP boxes :-(

I've reported this multiple times and asked for sources to check/trak this, 
no reply at all :-(

and to summarize and add one more:

* Problem 15 - no source available 
do I need to say anything more ? :-((
