In Debian Sarge (and I guess also with these packages), as explained
here above, kernel oplocks are disabled by default at build time to make
it work on 2.2 kernels. On Etch and above, 2.2 kernels are no longer
officially supported, so this is no longer a problem.

I will try to install those packages on the problematic machine this
evening and will let you know soon.
