Slow Shutdown when Network Mgr closes before CIFS unmounted

I have installed WICD and this does not fix the problem.
The pre-disconnection script setting looked promising but this only runs
when you manually disconnect from the wireless network - not when the XFCE
session shuts down.

I prefer Network Manager, particularly for an 'average' user - it is simpler
and the applet icon illustrates the signal strength.

Can anyone point me in the right direction for writing a script that runs
when the XFCE session is closing ? - as a get-around.  I would prefer if I
can just use python since this is just temporary.  Can anyone tell me the
(XFCE?) library that should look at ? - and maybe suggest objects/methods,
