Do not consider escaped '(' as a separator and do not crash if '(' does not find its ')'

Description of problem:
automount does not perform a sanity check of server name in configuration. Unmatched brackets in the configuration can cause automount to crash.

Also, with replication using wildcard '&', the same code crashes when the requested mount point contains an escaped bracket '\('.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

For the wildcard:

# echo '/jobman/tmp1 file /etc/auto.jobman.tmp1 -nodev,nosuid,intr,soft,retry=3,private' > /etc/auto.master 

# echo '* -nodev,nosuid,intr,soft,retry=10,proto=tcp &:/tmp1' > /etc/auto.jobman.tmp1

# service autofs restart

# df /jobman/tmp1/bl\(ah

For the configuration error:

# echo '/jobman/tmp1 file /etc/auto.jobman.tmp1 -nodev,nosuid,intr,soft,retry=3,private' > /etc/auto.master 

# echo '* -nodev,nosuid,intr,soft,retry=10,proto=tcp hostname(2:/tmp1' > /etc/auto.jobman.tmp1

# service autofs restart

# df /jobman/tmp1/foo

Actual results: Crash

Expected results: No crash

Additional info:

Attached patch that should fix both crashes.

hi Ian,
There's typo in bz692816/runtest.sh, I corrected it and checked it in cvs now. FYI, in order to let you sync with cvs while you develop the regression testsuite, thanks.
./runtest.sh: command substitution: line 28: unexpected EOF while looking for matching `''
./runtest.sh: command substitution: line 29: syntax error: unexpected end of file

I've rescheduled jobs and will update results later...
