Actually the mount process behaves in exactly the same way as my emacs process
as mentioned in an earlier post (topic: "process with connection in CLOSE_WAIT won't
die in 2.4.2").

It'll stay in the proceslist regardless of what kill signal is sent to it
and appears to be (and very much _stay_) in un-interuptable sleep.

The same can be said for the various mount processes, both when mounting
loopback and scsi devices.

Another thing that struck me as weird was that after all the problems
with the mount and emacs process, trying to unmount a NFS share was not
possible even though the NFS server had no problems whatsoever mounting
new shares.
