About NFS home directories and CentOS have you .nfsxxxxxxxxx tempory 
files located in the home of your user ?
I have this very often. I was not able to found any documentation about 
this but if they are temporary files for NFS transactions is there a way 
to store them on on local client disk area like /tmp instead of a NFS 
These files are some time difficult (if not impossible) to remove by the 
user on the client side and stay on the disk... until I remove the 
oldest ones on the server side.
