Traditionally, we start the NFS daemons as a service to people who
forget to start them before starting rgmanager.

I.e.  Red Hat / Fedora Core users are supposed to do this prior to
configuring NFS services in rgmanager:

   chkconfig --level 345 nfslock on
   chkconfig --level 345 nfs on

It's really an attempt at a workaround a configuration problem -- and
nothing more.
