I managed to clearly standby/unstandby mine a few times initially -- 
otherwise I wouldn't have put it in production -- but on the last 
several reboots DRBD filesystem just wouldn't unmount. Never corrupted 
anything but it's still a serious PITA. Especially with a couple of 
haresources pairs right next to it switching over perfectly every time.

Insult to injury, the RA start spewing "can't unmount, somebody's 
holding open" messages to the console at such rate that it is impossible 
to login and try lsof, fuser, or anything.
