Avoid the spinning 'wait' cursor after location switch
Authored by: Durandal on Dec 13, '06 07:41:14PM
What about disconnecting from (i.e. unmounting or "ejecting") any connected network drives (shares) before leaving work? Because I don't think you'll get the spinning cursor unless you have some remote filesystems mounted that become inaccessible.
Disconnecting your network shares does not really touch automount, though. If your office has networked Library and Applications folders, then automount will still want to look for them, and that can end up beachballing. Switching to the NULL location should tell automount that those resources are going away.
