Hi All,

For some time I've seen the following behaviour on an nfs-client
running the alpha-port of NetBSD-current (well, it's a month old
or so at the moment 1.2G). When the machine with the nfs-server is down 
(a '486 same-age NetBSD, acting as gateway and file-server for 
supped NetBSD-sources and such), a shutdown on the alpha results 
in a panic. It reports something like:

Empty nfs-response error... Panic... If necessary, I can reproduce the
error and give  more accurate description of the text displayed.
I guess this situation will be rather rare and can generally be avoided,
but I thought I'd better report it here...
