Yep, it's some weird UID:
drwxr-xr-x 2 4294967294 4294967294 10 Jul 30 11:14 New folder

So the solution would be to "chown 4294967294:4294967294 directory"? 
Was hoping for something more elegant, but it'll have to do I guess.

Also, another problem I notice is that doing anything on this NFS mount 
in windows is extremely slow and I frequently get a "Not Responding" 
Explorer window. Any thoughts on why this might happen?
