Thanks Jimmy,
this didn't the trick, but maybe i found the real source of my problem:

When stopping and restarting the portmapper, keyserv is stopped as well, but
not restarted again. If I restart the behaves like waiting on a timeout. I
enabled debugging and got output like:
	remotename=unix at

here, in remotename, I'm missing my hostname ... I would expect like:
"unix.vmware at" ??

Might this be the right direction where to look further?
