exactly my point. But what I want is to force the un-mount even if a term
is located in that directory.
ie: I have 1 xterm launching the script, and another xterm that has the
cwd in the mounted directory.
There is no way that I know of (other than killing the shell), of getting
that xterm to move safely out of the mounted directory.
