[ngw] OES2 hangs on shutdown or reboot

Posting here as well as elsewhere:
I have this OES2 server that hangs on shutdown or reboot, when un mounting remote (ncp) volumes. This happened on OES as well.
I created a script for /etc/init.d/halt.local that sniffs out and umounts these volumes. Works great from the command line.
But, server hangs on reboot running /etc/init.d/halt.local.
I can see this is after networking is shutdown. At least after eth(n) are turned off.
So, I suspect, umount cannot make nice when it cannot speak to the remotes. Like stuff I have read about
similar issues with NFS and other remote mounts.
Can I just sneak up the ladder of the shutdown sequence and run this script just before comms are (is ?) shutdown? (That is not
as straight forward as I initially thought, however.)
Or are there better solutions?
