I don't know why this is a problem for at least some of us. I once wrote the
author of that shutdown script and he thanked me for my valuable input but
the bug still seems to be there. My Rehat 7.1 distro did automatically do this for
you. They used grep  /proc/mounts with an awk script to see if any smbfs were up. However, I
still hung up because they only umounted these for final shutdown, level 1,
0, or 6, and I seemed to still have trouble. I think just taking down the
network without changing run levels might have been the problem.
So, I put the same thag into the stop section in RedHat, too. No problems
since. That's always a nice, warm feeling.
