No problem, here, Rui. ;)

Seems interesting. Have to take a glance at that.

NFS has a very bad reputation indeed, and it do may be my actual problem.
But I am not conscious of another way to share data between several
stations ?
And I also have seen sites (e.g. my current sponsor/client) which run
NFS for several hundred of very consuming users. Though their engineers
are certainly better sysadmins than me :)

Anyway, I have to wait until next week-end, back from travel, to try
to better diagnose the problem. Any hints are welcome.
