SubjectAutomount expiration bug: it does not like symlinks
Hi,

I just discovered that automount misbehaves when its mount points are
syumlinks. It repeatedly reports expiration but fails to actually
unmount automounted dir.

See attached logs. My /mnt is a symlink to /.share/.local/mnt
If you plan to reproduce please note that my /etc/mtab is symlinked to
/proc/mounts which may contribute to this behavior.

# automount --timeout 5 /mnt/auto file /etc/autofs.conf
# cd /mnt/auto/hda2
# cd /
-- in syslog: --
