I've just upgraded to ypserv-1.3.9-1 on all our ypservers. However, I can
no longer yppush new maps to the slave servers from the master.

The slave servers give the message:

Mar  1 12:33:41 web ypserv[22251]: ypproc_xfr: refuse to transfer auto.test
from, map doesn't exist

The ChangeLog in /usr/doc/ypserv-1.3.9 states:
