Ok, I've now tried and tested it. On Solaris and FreeBSD absolutely
no problem whatso-ever (on the NFS dismount case I was refering to)
but I am still trying to track down the trouble on an OSF/1 machine
with nfs/amd.

In principle you are perfectly right; it is a short lived situation;
but a lot of mounting/dismounting by the amd (Funily enough AFS does not
seem to give the hassle) I still get occasional hangs of 30seconds
before an NFS timeout apprears. Even though the httpd has no right
to be in that directory at all.

But I guess the summary is that I would gove it a +0; not really in
favour but certainly not strongly against it. Anyone who relies on
nfs and  amd's under his webserver should check the logs for excessive
