I guess it has also something to do with the automounter. I am not able
to increase this number. 
But even if the automounter would handle more we need to be able to 
use higher ports: 
netstat shows always ports below 1024.

tcp        0      0 client:941         server:nfs

We need to mount up to 1400 nfs exports.
