I would fix it disabling network-manager on the eth0 if
we are talking about fix client stations.

Well, network-manager is useful for laptop clients to be able to access wireless and mobile broandband connections, so I think we should keep it. But have you checked the dependency/start order of network-manager and autofs services? Is sounds like there is something wrong there. Autofs should start after network-manager service.

The problem is not the start order of the services. The problem is that network-manager starts connecting eth0 in background. While that is happening all the other boot scripts overtake the dhclient process issues by network-manager.

Okay I see. I thought it was blocking until the IP address was offered. If this is reproduced in plain Debian too, I suggest moving this bug to the autofs or network-manager package.
