Bug#772342: debian-edu-config: mounting homedirs via NFS doesn't work reliably
> Hi Wolfgang,

Yes. Great to have it confirmed that there is a race condition
involving nslcd, autofs and network-manager. The fact that it is hidden
when network-manager is quicker is not really comforting, as it can
trigger at any time if there is a slow dhcp server or some other problem
related to the network.
Did you manage to figure out if nslcd could be told to wait until the
network is up? Did you try to restart it in the dhclient hook when the
network is up? I suspect the latter is required to get a robust setup
when machines change IP address, and the former is required to ensure
nslcd always work after boot.
