[Gluster-users] autofs problem

I'm working on replacing my Ubuntu 8.04 desktops with Ubuntu 10.04, but I've
hit a snag. Automount hangs on glusterfs (tried 3.0.4 and 3.0.5) in the same
manner as described on the RedHat Bugzilla:
So, it's apparently a problem in Fedora, too.
It also looks like Phil Packer reported the same issue in February and perhaps
the same issue was also reported by Christopher Nelson in May.
mount -t glusterfs ... works just fine by hand, but when autofs calls it, the
result is 5 lingering processes: the mount command, the mount.glusterfs command
that it called, a glusterfs command, a zombie glusterfs, and then another
glusterfs. It seems clear that autofs only called the mount command once, and
mount.glusterfs seesmt o have only called glusterfs once, but glusterfs somehow
failed and respawned a couple of times...
Is there a fix or workaround (other than to not use autofs)? Ubuntu 8.04
doesn't seem to have this issue, although I have had some machines hang up
eventually (with heavy computing/network use), and the symptoms seem to match a
hung-up autofs, so it's possible a similar issue is present but much more
