Common, as in I seem to recall finding lots of references on the web
when I had to solve this problem the first time.  A quick Google search
for "nfs directory caching"
<http://www.google.com/search?q=nfs+directory+caching> brings up high
scoring references to turning off a similar cache with a Solaris NFS
client, a WOE32 NFS client, and an unspecified client from anl.gov. 
Linux shows up around search result #8 or #9.
