Hi all.

Why is rpcbind/mountd/nfsd doing broadcasts when it's terminated?
I ran into problems when my neighbor came in blaming
me for trying to hack into his NFS mounts, and I was
really confused. When running tcpdump I noticed that
when I halted my NetBSD server/router/firewall machine
it sent four broadcast RPC packets into network.
Please forgive me if this is standardized rpcbind/mountd/nfsd
