This is really, really old, but not quite as old as I thought.

The latest revision is 186 but that doesn't look like it would help.

I'm not sure what this means, how about we call machines on which
autofs is running clients and NFS servers they are trying to mount
from servers.

Again, don't know what that means, no information on it.

I can look at the logs but even though the last updates are fairly
recent this is really old and upstream is usually focused on recent

Even if you log a bug at and we work out what
the problem is getting that into a release will be like pulling
teeth at this point of the RHEL-5 life cycle.
