So I thought!

Huh. Interesting. The default showed up as a nfsv3 mount:

 1/25  2:12 mountd/v3: granted to /bob ro=0 uid0=60001

The solaris mount showed up as:

 1/25  2:06 mountd/v3: granted to /bob ro=0 uid0=60001
 1/25  2:06 nfs/tcp accepted,1023

I'll try an explicit v3 mount/tcp and see if it's better.
