This looks very much as if when you ssh into the remote system the home
directory NFS mount fails.
Can you try to configure a local directory and see if the problem goes
away? If this helps then I would see what is going on with the NFS
client on the system.

Also I do not know how your SSH is configured. Does it actually delegate
the ticket?
AFAIU the system you SSH into needs to have a TGT to be able to mount an
NFS share on behalf of the user.
This is as far as I can go with what I know and what can be done without
actually looking at the logs on the system.
