Funny process kill with strace

Found out a weird thing where my process would hang when I tried to do a df and one of the nfs mounts would just hang there on our CentOS 5 machines.

I found that if I killed the process straight up, nothing would happen. But if I killed the pid like so:

kill 3560

And then do a strace on it:

strace -p 3560

It would end up killing the process for me!
