This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release.  Product Management has requested
further review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update release for currently deployed
products.  This request is not yet committed for inclusion in an Update
Comment 2 Ondrej Valousek 2008-08-02 05:02:36 EDT
Eventually, this seems to be a bug in nfs-utils (see bug #450646) and not in
autofs. /bin/mount command already handles this and /sbin/mount.* should as
well. I believe there is no need to patch autofs once nfs-utils are patched.
