This is bad - something in the path to this host on the network is
corrupting network packets. Check duplex settings, cables, NICs,

I'm guessing the freezes you're seeing are NFS blocking system IO as
TCP tries to retransmit the data or ack packets that the network ate.
Mounting the NFS share with the 'soft' option on the client might
alleviate this, as it will let you interrupt outstanding nfs
operations (though it won't solve the underlying issue - your network
is dropping packets).
