Re: umount still getting wrong switches

Please see my Bug#2304. The problem is that during shutdown, the network layer
(e.g. PPP?) is destroyed before any attempt is made to unmount the NFS
partition, which subsequently fails. This also leaves /var unable to be
unmounted, which is why you see it being fscked on reboot.

I have not yet seen any suggestions for how to resolve this problem. If you
have any ideas, I would welcome a discussion.
