Firewall is most likely not the problem - I've got an direct
route between all the boxes. 

Today, it happened again. My notebook had several problems in
the fs (broken dirs, readonly, ...) and cfs checkservers hung, 
while the local router/server (which was started about a min 
earlier) had no trouble.

Shutting down and restarting venus solved the problem.

The only noticable difference between these two boxes is that the
notbook isn't always shut down cleanly. So maybe some things in 
the cache may be broken. Obviously this got repaired on the second
startup of venus.
