There is a bug in /etc/rc.d/init.d/autofs with "reload" or "restart". The
older automount processes will not get killed.

The problem seems to be in line 149,

                if ! grep -q "^$command" $TMP2; then

Here, $TMP2 ought to be $TMP1.

Also "^$command" ought to be "^$command$" or something like that to check
for new options added to the end of the line in the auto.master file.

The first item looks correct; we'll incorporate it into autofs-3.1.4-5 and
later.  You might want to bounce this to the autofs mailing list
(autofs@linux.kernel.org), which goes to the authors of the codebase that
all distributions use.
