I have run into this quite often, blame me for being a sloppy admin,
forgot to change something in /etc/dhclient.conf.
If you try to mount an nfs-share that is not an nfs-share at all
mount_nfs keeps trying till infinity to mount that share. You can't
kill the process and even a decent reboot won't work anymore.
I am not a coder at all so my solution may seem silly and any better
solution is welcome.
To let mount_nfs do some sanity checks on the mount-point before
actually mounting it, like pinging, and testing if the port is open
Maybe this should be on gnats?
