Is there any sane way to make that occur immediately?  The scenario is
that we are running ZMailer on a high availability cluster.  Fail over
seems to be hampered sometimes and I suspect that the reason is that
the transport agents are still running and consequently the shared
disk partition can't be unmounted due to these processes still
accessing it.
