Re: cfagent problem

The problem (mentioned in the docs) is with nfs. NFS code is in the
kernel. If cfengine is asked to use NFS then *nothing* it or anyone else
can do can recover from an NFS hang until NFS itself recovers, because
NFS has kernel privileges. This is not a cfengine problem, it's an NFS
problem. SOrry.
