That looks correct. So either something's changed in Dovecot since I
last tested it with NFS, or something's changed in Linux kernel. Or
there's something else weird going on.
I don't really have any good suggestions for solutions and I don't
really have time to debug NFS problems right now.. Or you could of
course always try if disabling NFS attribute cache fixes things, but
that'll most likely also make your performance a lot worse.
