Hi Tom,

if a nfs-mounted directory is open and the network link crashes,
emelfm2 hangs forever. Probably this has nothing to do with e2, a shell
will hang, too.
Tested with latest svn (revision 509)
Steps to reproduce:
  * Go into a nfs-mounted directory (In this case nfs4,
i think that doesn't matter)
  * Stop the network link.
  * Wait a few seconds
e2 won't be responsive anymore, needs a signal -9 to end.

Perhaps this is a nfs(4)-related problem or a problem related to my
distribution (gentoo). Sometimes my computer doesn't shut down, 
because, I guess, a broken nfs-mount blocks something and the init
scripts can't proceed with shutting down.
