Thanks Paul. I think I've solved it - although the systems were happy to 
negotiate most file operations across nfs without the 'insecure' option 
on the exports (server), it was only after I added this that they would 
agree on locking. It was the message in the logs (after I'd set some 
more liberal logging options) that pointed me in the right direction - 
"nfsd: request from insecure port (7e000032:49213)!".
