Somebody gave me the answer to my question http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-questions/2006-November/135179.html I'm posting it in case somebody hits a similar problem.

By default the client is using NFS/TCP and when it crashes it does not release the TCP connection. It appears that the server then refuses to establish a second connection. On the linux clients I'm now using "mount -o udp /home" in my rc.local and everything seems fine.
