NFS issue

I booted up an old machine yesterday (predecessor to this box, as it 
happens) to recover some stuff (which it turned out I already had :-/). 
I accessed its HDD using automount. I looked around, figured out I 
already had everything I needed, su'ed to root & poweroff'ed, *before* 
the automount on this box had a chance to unmount the HDD from the other 
box. This got me an error message in my messages file, but nothing else, 
except that whenever I do a 'df' since (which would show the automounted 
HDD's from other boxen), the process hangs & I have to kill the (rxvt) 
terminal & start another one. I explicitly unmounted the offending HDD 
w/ 'umount -f', but still no joy. How do I get this fixed short of 
rebooting (if possible) ? TIA & have a good one.
