NFS and 2.1.111

I've been having problems with NFS with 2.1.111. I traditionally
transfer large files (5-20MB) between my linux workstation and a sun
fileserver. Up to 2.1.109 everything has been very solid, but now if I
transfer a file larger than 6MB, I get the following error:

cp: /vol/public/ Input/output error

Smaller files (1-2MB) files work just fine, and NFS in general seems
okay. I usually use 8K block sizes, but 1K blocks seem to do the same

Anyone else seen anything like this?
