Perhaps the question to ask is: under what circumstances is
`--disconnect' desirable?

Indeed, according to Roland's explanation, you would need --disconnect
when the filesystem server isn't honouring the fsys_goaway (or,
alternatively, you could just kill the process).

I like `--detach' a little better, because it carries the implication
that the filesystem server is left intact, but is dropped from the

Would it help make things clearer to think about what the semantics of
`settrans -fg --detach' are?

[As an aside, thanks for doing this, Neal.  It'll be reassuring to
have another way of keeping the system running in the face of a
translator bug.]
