Could this be related to the locking of the SQLite DB which (as has been 
documented many, many times) is generally a bad thing.

The same problems will be apparent not that FF3 uses SQLite.

I'm not sure where it's at at the moment, but SQLite over NFS really 
needs to get a whole lot better (assuming this hasn't already happened 
and I missed it ;))
