but portmapper should listen to both tcp and udp ports though...

i was going to suggest that myself.  bill, do this:

   # tcpdump -i eth0 udp port 2048

and try to mount.  you should see a communication attempt.   this should
narrow down the culprit a bit.

if you didn't update the kernel, there's no reason to expect the kernel
is the culprit.

when was the last time you apt-got anything?

have you checked daemon.log?  messages?   can you run nfsd and portmap
with some kind of debug switches?
