For comparison, I see this issue and I *do* use maintenance mode 
(because presumably that's the 'blessed' way to shut things down and I'm 
scared to mess this complex system up by straying off the beaten path 
;). My process is:

ssh root at engine "init 0"
(wait for "vdsClient -s 0 list | grep Status:" to show the vm as down)
hosted-engine --set-maintenance --mode=global

And then on startup:
hosted-engine --set-maintenance --mode=none
hosted-engine --vm-start

There are two issues here. I am not sure if they are related or not.
1. The NFS timeout during shutdown (Joop do you see this also? Or just #2?)
2. The system reboot instead of poweroff (which messes up remote machine
