ctrl-C should work just fine. When I rebuilt the handling of the
various nfs/nullfs mounts in HEAD, I did run across a number of cases
where filesystems would be left mounted, with potentially disastrous
results when various rm -rf's did their job.
kill -9 is going to do a lot more than leave a lockfile around -- it
*will* also leave filesystems mounted which could quite easily get
wiped out (either via rm or double-mounting) on further runs.
