Ahh, you use woody. Then the definition of the ldap-automount was
somewhat different on the clients, but the result is the same.

NO Problem, woody did not use auto.master, but instead used another file
called ... let me check ..., hmm, cant find it, as I only have
main-server installations left on woody. :)

As Said, we used a different method for autofs-ldap on woody, so the
auto.master file is not relevant. Although it seems we could have used
the same approach in woody as we use in sarge.
