Yep, NFS is primarily a pain in the patoot. The only solution
I have found is to explicitly code around it where I can by doing
things like stating files in a separate process that will send the
results back to the main process so I can do my own reasonable
timeout and leave the poor NFS accessing child hung until it
eventually goes away.

You can do something like that up front and umount -l the
offending systems (the -l option is a Godsend, it actually works
immediately with no timeout).
