As far as I know, Solaris has no NFS locking problems.  They finally
fixed them several years ago.  Current Solaris locking works nicely.

Here's a truss of the failing operation:

write(6, "\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0".., 4096)    = 4096
write(6, "\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0".., 2160)    = 2160
mmap(0x00000000, 1032192, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_SHARED, 6, 0) Err#11 EAGAIN
write(2, " m m a p (", 5)                       = 5
write(2, " d c c _ d b - n e w", 10)            = 10

The error means:

     EAGAIN         The mapping could not be locked in memory.

                    There was insufficient room to  reserve  swap
                    space for the mapping.

                    The file to be mapped is already locked using
                    advisory  or  mandatory  record locking.  See

I don't know which of these would be affected by NFS.
