Hmm... I don't know what happened then.

ack, NFS seems to not like the file sharing method use by the clients much... we're working on a new file sharing 
mechanism which will hopefully fix this in the future... in the meantime, (if you are able to do so), you may wish to try to use 
a personal proxy to buffer blocks.  As long as it is properly shut down before the copy, personal proxy buffers CAN be 
moved to other personal proxies for flushing/fetching.
