OSX and Linux NFS shares

At work we had this odd problem of OSX (Leopard) clients disconnecting from our NFS file shares. The problem occurred when the clients opened the index of their mounted location. At this point the whole finder (OSX file browser) disconnected and reported “Connection interrupted”. However, the users were able to open child folders directly (e.g. /mount/folder/) which eventually made their work little bit possible, but usually within minutes they got disconnected again while doing copy jobs and such.
