Description of problem:
automount daemon seems to hang, and will not mount (or expire) anything.
attached strace to automount, saw the following ...
[root@acnlin86 tmp]# strace -p 3719
Process 3719 attached - interrupt to quit
futex(0x24720c, FUTEX_WAIT, 2, NULL

Tried to mount filesystems while in strace,
saw absolutely know activity.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
autofs-4.1.3-47/2.4.21-27.0.2  autofs-4.1.3-104/2.4.21-27.0.1

How reproducible:
Couldn't Reproduce

Additional info:

Couldn;t reproduce but problem seems to have started
when a file server exporting a filesystem went down.
Automount never recovered after that.
