CIFS, Wicd and Ubuntu 14.04 slow shutdown/reboot

Got this problem after mounting a CIFS/Samba drive through my wireless network. This appears to be a rather normal problem for lots of users. It was also hard locating a fix for my problem, as many users are using network manager as well.

I found a great fix though, which also is reported to work for network manager.

It's rather uncomplex and logical. The fix is moving the umount procedure to a earlier runlevel in the rc.d folders. The problem appears to be that the system shuts down the wifi before umounting.

Go into /etc/rc.0 and /etc/rc.6, and move
user@system:/etc/rc0.d$ mv

Hope this helps :-)
