I think the fact that the cache manager did not shutdown cleanly is not
related to using ext3 as cache, and more to the fact that a process kept
files open in /afs (at least thats what the shutdown messages told me).
Perhaps I should do "fuser -9 -k -m /afs", but this is racy
Does openafs have an option for "forced umount", like nfs?

1.2.3, both client and server
I am less worried about shutdown failure, but messing up my filesystem is
really really bad.
