pam_mount does't unmount shares properly in openSUSE 12.2

After I installed openSUSE 12.2 I noticed that the user's shares mounted by pam_mount were not unmounting on logout or shutdown. My script to manually unmount them was also broken.

After much looking around Google and poking around the innards of openSUSE I actually read the notes in pam_mount.conf.xml, and what do you know? I found the following tidbit:

<!-- requires ofl from hxtools to be present -->
<logout wait="2000" hup="0" term="1" kill="1"/>

<Insert head slap here> I installed hxtools and everything was working like it should be. I guess that's what I get for not reading the directions first!
