Combining replies:

Sander:  nfs-utils-clients wasn't installed on the misbehaving laptop. 
After installation, all the mounts work, the 
ones don't.  More digging to be done.

The errors for those two are:

'mount.nfs: rpc.statd is not running but is required for remote locking.
mount.nfs: Either use '-o nolock' to keep locks local, or start statd.
mount.nfs: an incorrect mount option was specified'

Not sure what I have to do about statd - my efforts don't seem to have 
achieved much.

AL113N: 'useer' is a red herring :-)  I was typing what I could see on 
the netbook screen.  This is a new install and I hadn't slowed down the 
keyboard repeat - doing that now.  dmesg didn't have anything to say, 
and nfs is in lsmod.

Frank: since the mounts are now working, I think we can 
assume that nfs is started.  Or maybe not - nfs-common.service is 
reported as loaded but dead.  I've restarted it, but it has no effect on 
the troublesome mounts.
