I have not noticed the issue you report, however for NFS I note that we have nginx between varnish and an apache backend for some of our content, (routed by varnish). This allows apache to serve as the central management for most/all virtual hosting, rewrites, and expires headers, however for large files on NFS, it lets nginx manage local disk caching saving the majority of the NFS overhead.
