FYI, I just tried turning off wifi before shutdown and this did not
help on my laptop.  I'm on Wheezy/Stable.

Ken, on your Jessie install, does the cifs mount get unmounted when you
shutdown wifi?  I checked and it does not get unmounted with my new
Wheezy install.

But I finally did find a workaround for myself on Wheezy: a
networkmanager dispatcher.d script that unmounts the cifs mount.


This completely resolved the issue (no special shutdown steps needed)
with the added benefit of the mount only getting attempted when I'm
connected to the right wifi network to start with.

Hope this helps someone.  I'm still looking forward to an actual fix
that doesn't require shell scripting to work around the issue!
