I doubt this is related to rpc.idmapd.
Immediately after starting rpc.idmapd, /etc/init.d/nfs attempted to mount
any NFS filesystems required by /etc/fstab.

If, as you say, networking is not configured at this point, then this is going
to fail, and take quite a long time in failing. 3-4 minutes per mount point
does not seem at all unlikely.

Options:
- Add the 'bg' option to all the mounts. This will cause them to timeout
significantly more quickly, and continue retrying in the background.
- Don't use network manager, but rather use ifup to configure at boot time.
I appreciate that this might not be practical on a notebook.
- configure automounting to mount those 5 filesystems. That was the mount
wont even be attempted until you want to look a the content.

automounting is really the best option to use in conjunction with
network-manager.

Possibly the yast installer should not allow you to both choose network
manager and request nfs filesystems to be mounted at boot-time.

So I'm treating this as a configuration error, and reassigning to the
installer team so they can comment on whether or not it is possible to
make that error impossible with yast.
