Stupid question time: Can you write to the drive okay when you have it
mounted at /tmp/mnt/disc0_3 on the remote host? 

I mean, does this work?

user at remote$ touch /tmp/mnt/disc0_3/dumb_test.txt 

Other culprits may be lurking in your /etc/exports file on remote, or
maybe the command you use to mount the system locally. If you post
those then maybe the smart people can help you.
