[PVE-User] NFS mount status unavailable in webui but functional in shell

pvesm list 'VM-Storage' works on all nodes and gives a list like this:
VM-Storage:100/vm-100-disk-1.qcow2     qcow2 274877906944 100
VM-Storage:100/vm-100-disk-2.qcow2     qcow2 536870912000 100
VM-Storage:101/vm-101-disk-1.qcow2     qcow2 274877906944 101
VM-Storage:102/vm-102-disk-1.qcow2     qcow2 274877906944 102

showmount --exports IP_ADDR also works on all nodes and gives the expected
export list from the NFS server where VM-Storage exists.

It seems kind of odd that this works on the first and third node, but not
the second and fourth.  Does
/api2/json/nodes/proxmox-2-2/storage/VM-Storage/status get handed off to a
backend process that may not be responding correctly?

One item of note is that I hadn't noticed earlier is that this doesn't
appear to be limited to NFS, if I attempt to hit
https://localhost:8006/api2/json/nodes/proxmox-2-2/storage/local/status I
see the same behavior on nodes 2 and 4.
