I looked at the 4.1.4-33 version of /etc/init.d/autofs.

It uses autofs-ldap-auto-master to get the master map, and then calls an
automount process with each map found.

This list of automount commands is shown by "/etc/init.d/autofs status".

Can you compare this status on the two boxes (4.1.3 and 4.1.4) ?

Since you don't see requests for those maps in the LDAP server logs, those
commands are perhaps wrongly generated.

You can also add verbose and debug options in /etc/sysconfig/autofs:

DAEMONOPTIONS="--timeout=60 --verbose --debug"
