I suspect someone else will have more to say on this, but I would tend to
look to Redhat for a fix for this, we have no changes in the automounter
area, so the chances are this is a Wolverine problem. Have you checked
on the wolverine mailing lists and with redhats bug databases for problems
in this area?
