Default NFS Locking Failure and Updating

I have a general question about installing updates and wanted to get some advice from experts.

First: I have NFS Locking failures on shutdown. Is this a bid deal? Should I even worry about it?

Second: I have read and googled a lot about this problem and it seems that it is supposed to be fixed with nfs-utils-1.0.7-16. I have already updated my machine via yum update and apt-get update . When I do a yum search, I get:
Code:
[root@Mr-Burns ~]# yum search nfs-utils

nfs-utils.i386                           1.0.7-8                base
Matched from:
nfs-utils
The nfs-utils package provides a daemon for the kernel NFS server and
related tools, which provides a much higher level of performance than the
traditional Linux NFS server used by most users.

This package also contains the showmount program.  Showmount queries the
mount daemon on a remote host for information about the NFS (Network File
System) server on the remote host.  For example, showmount can display the
clients which are mounted on that host.


nfs-utils-debuginfo.i386                 1.0.7-11               updates-released

It appears that I only have 1.0.7-11 installed. How can I find out if this is the latest released version? If it is, should I try to install an unreleased 1.0.7-16 to fix my problem, or am I just asking for more headaches?

Finally: Can I just turn off NFS locking using a chkconfig command? What will happen if I just decide to not use NFS Locking?

Thanks!
