ncpfs weirdness

Hello, All !

I got some troubles with ncpfs ( from 12.11.97 ) and 2.1.65 kernel.

If application opens a file ( on ncp ) and then finish without closing it,
ncfps will not actually close it ( server shows the file is opened ). As the
result, ncpfs couldn't be unmounted ( Device or resource is busy ). If file
has no Sh[areable] attribute, it will be locked ( Permission Denied ).

Almost the same situation, if server kicks the user fs is mounted under.
If at least one file is open, file system will be locked ( can't umount, but
no filesystem actually mounted ! ). Again, files are still used by ncpfs and
Device or resource is busy is returned.


The problem with people who have no vices is that generally you can
be pretty sure they're going to have some pretty annoying virtues.
