Description of problem:
NFS (at least client) hangs with glibc-2.1.3-24 on slow serial line (SDSL).
With glibc-2.1.3-23 everything works fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure nfs client to nfs server on slow serial line (actually SDSL at 
speed 1680 kbit/s)
2. Install glibc-2.1.3-24.i386.rpm from ftp://updates.redhat.com//6.2/en/os/i386
3. mount nfs directory and try to copy file with size more than 3Mb

Actual Results:  I've got lots of errors such as:
"nfs server not responding",
"nfs: can't get a request slot".
Perfomance nfs operations become dramatically low (In my case about 6-10 
Kilobyte per second)

Expected Results:  With glibc-2.1.3-23 it works at speed 1700 kbyte per second
without error "nfs: can't get a request slot".

Additional info:

NFS server and client uses Redhat Linux 6.2 with all updates.

What is the status of this when using RHL9?

No reply in almost 6 months.  Closing as WORKSFORME.
