Ah.  I think I've had the same problem (it fails during the netfs script).
In my case, that was on a CLFS build, and I assumed something in
that toolchain was causing the problem.  Commenting the following
chunk of code in the netfs script worked around it for me.:

                        # Try and stop processes the nice way
                        # (probably won't work in most cases)
                        /bin/fuser -SIGTERM -km $NETMOUNTS > /dev/null

                        # Check and see if it found anything.  If it
                        # did, then give 3 seconds for things to exit
                        # the nice way before killing them off.
                        # This one will work all of the time!
                        if [ $? = 0 ]
                                /bin/sleep 3
                                /bin/fuser -km $NETMOUNTS > /dev/null

After that, it continues to umount _netdev, and then to umount by
fstype, so commenting the code on a desktop doesn't seem to
cause any problems.

All I've established so far is that the call to fuser with -SIGTERM
is described as 'Terminated' (status 143) if run manually, and the
second call is described as 'Killed' (status 137).  I've been
assuming something in the clfs toolchain might have caused fuser
to be miscompiled [ mid-September book, with 2.6.31 headers.
If this is LFS, and your problem turns out to match, then it might
be a general problem with psmisc-22.8.

FWIW, trying to run strace didn't do a lot of good (strace
appeared to be killed by the SIGTERM).

After tragedy, and farce, "OMG poneys!"
