I think I may have found a bug in autofs 3.9.99. I'm using the Debian
"testing" version 4.0.0pre10-0 of the autofs package, running under kernel
I have my home filesystem mounted to /export/home (local xfs). Furthermore I
have mounted a (local xfs) filesystem into /export/home/foobar/bighd. Using
the automounter I mount /export/home/* to /home:
This is the auto.home map on the machine where /export/home is physically
Now when I access /home/foobar the directory /export/home/foobar is bound to
/export/home/foobar on /home/foobar type none (rw,bind)
HOWEVER /home/foobar/bighd is EMPTY, while /export/home/foobar/bighd is
I know there's an issue with the kernel NFS daemon re. this "multiplexing" (is
this the right term?), but curiously this has worked before with autofs 3.1.4
(debian version "3.1.4-9"), and I know I haven't changed my setup (read
"configuration") apart from upgrading the machine from "stable" to "testing"
(and thusly upgrading autofs from 3.1.4 to 3.9.99,) and from upgrading the
kernel from 2.4.17 to 2.4.18.
Any idea what's going on here? Could the problem be XFS related?
