NFS problem with 2.0.25

When I compile within Emacs on a NFS mounted filesystem, I frequently get
the following error from make when I saved a source file immediately
before starting make:

make: *** File `' has modification time in the future

If I re-run the compilation, it will succeed. The clocks of both, the
client and the server are synchronized within 50ms. I suspect the NFS
attribute cache being flushed on write, and the attributes on the server
are not yet updated, or is it just the other way round (attributes in the
cache are still old)?
