Hmm, I am unable to reproduce it :(.
I have ftp dir, there is misc directory which is autofs maintained and --bind
mounted directories from some corners of / (i. e. ntfs and ext3 dirs mounted
through --bind).
in /etc/auto.master:
...
/home/ftp/misc /etc/auto.ftpmisc
...

in /etc/auto.ftpmisc:
...
l -fstype=bind :/l/latest
...

Somebody was browsing through the ftp binded tree and these bugs appeared (only
twice).

I can't confirm... I don't know.
