NFS issue, "device or resource busy"


I have a server that exports /home for all my clients. When I was installing a new client, repeating the same confs, I got a serious issue mounting nfs directories from the server.

Seems the directory is mounted, though I can ls, and other normal bash's.
But when I run programs and read/write files in the mounted directories, the mounted directory crashes!
Going back to root, I try to umount the directory, but gives me this error
[root@AQX600 /root]# umount -f /home
umount2: Device or resource is busy
umount: /home: device is busy
<srvip>:/home    /home     nfs     defaults     0  0
By the way, Conectiva 8 running here, kernel 2.4.18
