Description David Lehman 2005-06-22 17:20:21 UTC
Description of problem:
First access of a given expansion of a wildcard key in an NIS map with --ghost
option works fine. If you then leave that directory and allow it to time out and
then try to access it again it shows as though it's not mounted.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@whiskey root]# uname -r
[root@whiskey root]# rpm -q autofs

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up a ghosted NIS map containing a wildcard mount
2. access the mount
3. allow it to time out and unmount
4. access the mount
Actual results:
second access shows the dir as though it wasn't mounted while mount says it is
mounted. NOTE: subsequent accesses seem to work fine.

Expected results:
second access works

Additional info:
This only happens with wildcard entries in ghosted NIS maps.
