In my experience NFS has never been good fit for roaming laptops.
Even a force unmount before suspend hook doesn't solve this, and IIRC
will fail because file descriptors are kept open and NFS does the safe

I've never trusted Windows' disconnected mapped drive support, so have
never tested it.

Does sshfs or syncthing work for your usecase?  I haven't been able to
hang plasmashell when the ssh server disappears due to changing

Ideally I think that it would be neat if KDE could use something like
a combination of sshfs with a fuse overlayfs to handle writes to an
upper region when disconnected, and then sync then back to the lower
region (on the SSH server) once the correct network returns.

Easier than learning about Coda FS which was designed for this ;-)
