Good news, my problem has gone away. It seems as indeed having multiple NFS shares is causing the problem. Previously, I had a NFS share for thumbs, another for movies, and another for TV.
Not sure if this is worth it, but maybe add a word of warning on the XBMC Wiki NFS page (http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=NFS) regarding using multiple NFS shares?
I can finally close this painful chapter and move on, thanks for the suggestion, much appreciated! You guys rock!

I thought i fixed issues with multiple shares. Hence there is no entry in the wiki. Of course this is a bug and i want to fix it, but i'm unsure how to reproduce the issue

Well, if there's anything I can do to help you reproduce the issue (ie: more details), let me know. I'm a software developer, so I know how it feels when there's a desire to be able to reproduce something that you genuinely believe the customers are having issues with but you're unable to reproduce it, thus unable to help out the customer either
To be exact about my previous setup, I actually had 3 NFS shares:
Not sure if going from 2 to 3 makes things worse (because I imagine I'm only accessing 2 NFS shares simultaneously whenever I try to bring up menu during playback, because that action will also access the thumbs share from my observation).
Able to reproduce on multiple MacBook Pro's, and also made my AppleTV2 crash. I wish I had an opportunity to test this out with my WindowsXP machine to see if I can reproduce the issue there as well.

Well i would need the following:
1. the old exports file
2. your guisettings.xml
3. which skin are you using
I should be able to clone your setup then. Please ensure to remove any passwords from that files if there are any (most likely only in sources.xml, when u have samba shares or something like that).
Then i just play a file for at least 10 mins (or pause it) and after that i have to bring up the osd so the thumb gets loaded from nfs. I'm not sure if this will really access NFS. Normally the filecache would already have this thumb locally and fetch it from there.
I hope i get that crash then too.

exports file (what I had previously when I had the issue):
guisettings.xml (unchanged since I had issue):
skin: Transparency (default options)
advancedsettings.xml (former one when i had issues, I now have new share name):
You're correct, play video for at least 10 minutes, then pause it or whatever - in fact, just moving the mouse will be enough for me to crash it. I suspect it is when it's trying to access the nfs share I set up separately for thumbs.
I also observed that I'm able to go from full-size to windowed mode then back again (in Mac), using command+F, without crashing it. This makes me suspect it crashes whenever it's trying to bring up thumbs for the playback menu.
Making a separate post to ask my question now -
Really!? Normally filecache would be accessed locally!? I didn't know I can have that even if I have path substitution set up. Or is it assumed I have local thumb cache built BEFORE I add the path substitution section into advancedsettings.xml?
If I can have BOTH - have it default to thumbs stored locally, or use path substitution if thumbs are not found, that'd be great! Even better, if I change thumb/fanart, have it update my database, and it would force filecache update on my other devices.. is that possible? If I can do it that way at this moment, that would be SWEET!

For your second ( a bit off topic) thingy - jmarshall will make this happen in somewhere in the future. I surly just can't remember how its now so ignore my statement according caching.
Thx for the files so far...

Fixed the nfs crash. Thx for the report and help.
