I can't recall *exactly* what was going on as it was a while back.

We had 3 or 4 identical clients mounting maildirs. Under relatively
light real user load NFS 4 mounts would lock up and all sorts of other
weirdness. reverting back to v3 resolved the problems.

I never got round to trying again. I would probably have waitied until
we moved to a newer major version of CentOS.
