I guess I didn't look back
"non-fatal error as it was"? Huh? Back in the days of binary mount
data it was fatal. Try this on a new and old system.
Yes, I see...
That may well have been your problem, but it doesn't change the
EACCES has been a fatal error in mount.nfs until just recently. Why was
it changed? When is EACCES not fatal?

text-based mount.nfs: sort between permanent and temporary errors
and I'm not sure why EACCES was deemed a non fatal error, but I'm
beginning to agree with you... EACCES probably should be fatal...
But thats something easily fixed in nfs-utils...
