Hi, folks,

   We've been seeing this almost since we started rolling out C7: for no
apparent reason, it will automount *everyone* in /etc/auto.home, even
though most of those folks not only have never logged onto that server
or workstation, but are not allowed to.

   We distribute to all our systems the same auto.home, and we certainly
don't want to customize it for nearly 200 systems, we like it under
central control.

   Any clues as to why it does this? Note that kill -USR1 <autofs pid)
makes the unused ones umount in a minute or two.
