Every user that runs mono needs .wapi. You could for example
set up /tmp/wapi_$USER using a logon script that you place
in /etc/profile.d/, something like that:

#	/etc/profile.d/mono-wapi.sh

I don't want to nitpick, but you said:
"one server  running NIS, samba and exporting /home" :-)

The problems are probably related to nlockmgr, the NFS locking
manager. We don't use it.
