I don't know what is causing this, multiple people have now reported the
exact same problem. The common theme seems to be RedHat 6.2.

What version of lwp and rpc2 are you using?

Could you run clog from within gdb and turn up rpc2 logging, I should be
able to figure out why messages are dropped by the client from there.

    $ script clog-out
    $ gdb clog

    $ ^D
    $ mail -s"clog-out" < clog-out
