[Pkg-sysvinit-devel] Bug#367944: initscripts: /etc/rc(0|6).d/S20sendsigs kills wpa daemon before umounting nfs mounts

Package: initscript
Severity: normal


I am running a wpasuppclicant daemon for wireless networking. In my
home-lan I am sharing files via nfs. On Debian-systems the umount of
nfsfiles is via /etc/rc(0|6).d/S31umountnfs.sh which indeed starts
later than /etc/rc(0|6).d/S20sendsigs which kills the wpa daemon. So
if you have nfs entries in mtab umountnfs.sh hangs|freezes the
machine.  Hardresets aren't the best for the filesystems.

I manually fixed S31umountnfs.sh to S19umountnfs.sh but isn't really
reasonable for me.


  Numeric stability is probably not all that 
  important when you're guessing;-)
