Backtrace of Crash from gdb

Description of problem:
If you cd to a directory that doesn't exists in the automount maps and this 
map has an unusual character in it (in my case a leading dot and underscores). AutoFS dumps core.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
only running though on an i686 kernel (i.e PAE kernel doesn't even crash)

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1.We have a master map containing /projects but no map .CSL_APP_VER
2.cd /projects/.CSL_APP_VER
3.automount process crashes
