Yeah, indeed, you can reboot and that will unmount proc or/and sys. I've
left it mounted various times, and realised during the ltsp-build-image
stage, resulting in lots of nasty error messages, but no lasting damage.
When it happenned, I restarted the computer, prayed a bit, and everything
was a ok.
