More information ...

By installing WICD, I found that the slow shutdown ('CIFS VFS: No reponse
...') is a problem regardless of whether you use WICD or Network Manager.

This get-around works for me ...

Make a link in the 2 relevant rc folders to umountnfs.sh that are earlier in
the alphabet than the existing link to umountnfs.sh (so that umountnfs.sh
runs earlier).

# For shutdowns ..
cd /etc/rc0.d
sudo ln -s ../init.d/umountnfs.sh K02umountnfs

# For reboots ..
cd /etc/rc6.d
sudo ln -s ../init.d/umountnfs.sh K02umountnfs

(This doesn't work if you use '-n' with the smbmount command because
umountnfs.sh reads the /etc/mtab file to find mounts.)

By the way, after trying out WICD, I prefer Network Manager - simpler for
the 'average'  user and the icon graphically displays an indication of the
wireless connection strength.
