I didn't reboot, but I did check that I could 'ls' all the
NFS mounts (all of which were in my exclusion list anyway).
And if it was hung in a stat(), I wouldn't think that
strace would have showed all 3 processes sitting in select().

Plus, of course, there was no hang when I removed
the --dry-run option and did the real backup :-).
