before the mount was actually completed.  This caused weird problems when
used with autofs such as empty directories on first listing or files which
would appear in "ls" but would return "no such file or directory" under
"ls -l".  Note to Volker:  Initial attempt from CIFS conference didn't work.
Had to move daemonize function inside of loop after ioctl.
