on 5.0:
we didn't have the ssh login problem (with asking for password),
but the problem with missing files using nfs and automount.
The nfs problems increased after update to 5.1, so, we get problems
with ssh.

we've upgrade the 5.1 box to the kernel to 53.1.4 (as suggested by Ian Kent) 
and the nfs and ssh problems seem to be passed away, for now. 
We have to keep an eye on it for a few days to be sure.

no, on 5.0 we had only the "missing files" problem with nfs/automount.
