History repeats itself eh?  I haven't tried the usual suspects, as I 
have been doing some searching (lots) on google, and haven't gotten to 
much.  What is noatime?

This is the fstab:
nfs-home1:/home1  /users/home1   nfs 
nfs-home2:/home2  /users/home2   nfs 

Local writes are quite fast and normal.
