I'm seeing the same symptoms.  I was OK until this morning's updates,
which did not include util-linux, but did include (speculating wildly)...

 Nils Philippsen  Fedora Core 3 Update: system-config-services-0.8.21-0.fc3.1
 Daniel J Walsh   Fedora Core 3 Update: selinux-policy-targeted-1.17.30-2.93

I have other NFS(v3) clients [Solaris 8] which are seeing things from
the RH9 server no problem.  My FC3 clients are seeing the FC3 server
(NFSv4) just fine.

No messages in any logs other than the one Espen reports.  Happy to
help with chasing this one...
