Re: autofs: mounts may fail with 'Too many levels of symbolic links' when using cgmanager


Just a short heads-up: It's pretty clear now that this is a fundamental
design issue in cgmanager. Anyone using a non-systemd setup with
cgmanager should be aware that the latter breaks unrelated packages
since it prevents clean umounts. Packages like autofs and e2fsprogs
work perfectly fine as designed. There are no issues whatsoever when
using systemd (or any other setup which doesn't use cgmanager).

Please see Theodore Ts'o's explanation here [1]. More discussion
can be found in the complete bug report for #770205.
