ls slow on top-level directory (was: NFS errors)

It looks like NFS is not completely to blame. It turns out that doing an
"ls" on the directory "/c" or "/exports/c" (both mount points for c:) is
also unusually slow, though it takes a mere 45 seconds rather than 17
minutes to return. If I export and mount a subdirectory of c:, however,
NFS seems to work satisfactorily. I notice that "ls" reports:
/bin/ls: hiberfil.sys: No such file or directory
/bin/ls: pagefile.sys: No such file or directory
"ls hi<tab>" completes to "ls hiberfil.sys", and shows the same message.
Could this have something to do with the slow response? Although if I do
an "ls h*", the above response comes back immediately, not after a wait.
