I've only seen this happen when the mountpoint was inside an exported
filesystem.  If you explicitly export the mountpoint it seems to work
(e.g. exporting /mnt will make a few empty folders available via NFS,
but exporting /mnt/blah explicitly will make the entire /mnt/blah
filesystem available over NFS.)
