Ok, more info: at this point, it seems obvious that it's an NFSv4 problem,
not a network problem: I've created /scratch/foo, exported it, and mounted
it on the same machine at /mnt/foo. I then cd to that directory, and
unpack a large file which is located in a user's home directory which is
NFSv4 mounted. In a native directory, takes about a minute; when I cd to
/mnt/foo and do it, it takes about 6.5 min. I've tried setting wsize and
rsize to 1M; I've tried noatime, which someone in a post said helped, and
nothing I do makes more than a second or two's difference.

Clues for the poor?
