#2249 is not related. Must be some other bug.

Note, the '8259' here in

    [1021277:8259]: error: can't open output file "/some/path/TEST.1763": Permission denied

is actually geteuid(2) under which the open(2) system call fails while getuid(2) 
is '0' at this point in time.  Reproducing the actual problem in an isolated way thus should doable with a small C 
program that is run as user 'root':

#include ...

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
   if ((fd=open64("/some/path/TEST.1763", O_WRONLY|O_CREAT|O_APPEND, 0644))<0) {
     fprintf(stderr, "open64() failed: %s\n", strerror(errno));
     return 1;
   return 0;

Could you try this and file us then an IssueZilla issue with the result?

Please make sure you add complete OS + HW information both for the 
execution node and the NFS server and all relevant information about 
the NFS mount.
