Indeed.  And with mounts using "-i" you should be able to interrupt any
process no matter what operation it is doing, including "df" and related.

On that note though, is there any chance that '-C' could actually be
causing some problems for you?  The suggestion in the manual page is
that an errant ICMP Port Unreachable packet could cause a mount to hang
when this option is used.
