Yes, there does appear to be a problem with MFS - I have seen two
behaviours when shutting down the machine:

1) Machine panics with a bad memory reference in VFS_START+0x25 -
which looks to be the unlock of the mount point

2) Machine just wedges - breaking to ddb just has it waiting on a lock

I suspect that there is some memory that is being freed but still
being used.
