When building from ports it's quite easy to change back to fam, just put


into /etc/make.conf

For existing systems/binary installed systems, you can just pkg_delete
-f gamin* and install fam instead, so gamin libraries wil be replaced by
the fam ones, it works well to me. One nasty thing is that when afterwards 
installing a package requiring gamin, it will fail with errors. To prevent 
this you could just "fake" the pkg db that gamin is installed however 
actually fam libraries are installed.

Maybe because you just unmount on exactly the right moment, when gamin
is not occupying the file system? Or just all windows and processes are 
closed cleanly.
