When I was on my uber-security kick, I read the "Securing Debian Manual"
and tried to apply as many of the suggestions as I could to one of my
servers.  This included mounting /usr, /opt and /usr/local as read-only.
Whenever something upgraded a shared library in /usr/lib, if the
daemon(s) which had loaded that library are not restarted, then /usr
fails to remount as ro because it is busy.
