12 I remember having troubles doing ctr-C on mounts which I knew were
13 going to time out, and I was told that you couldn't kill it while it
14 was inside a kernel call or something to that effect. Of course, I
15 would thing that mount is going to get tied up in kernel stuff much
16 more often than something like javadoc, so I really don't know if it's
17 the same sort of problem.
19 Hope this helps
