This is a kernel problem and won't be fixed until autofs v5, which will
be introduced in the 2.5 kernels.

This is done on purpose iirc, upstream does it as well. Probably a case
of rtfm.

I have a fix for 53660 in my sources, 54967 should be a user
configuration problem. I'll upload a fix today or tomorrow.

This package is obsolete, it has been replaced by nfs-kernel-server
and nfs-kerel-user. It should probably be removed from the archive.

I'm not sure if 57417 is real, it worked for me. I also don't believe
58015, that also seems to work fine for me.

57011 is weird, /var/lib/slocate seems to disappear during some
upgrades. THe other might be fixed by now?

This code is really nasty, it makes assumptions on how the compiler
implements va_list. Should either be rewritten or removed imho.

Can't reproduce this.
