okay.  when a floppy drive is accessed, and there happens not to be a
floppy in the drive, you get an error "directory does not exist".

then you put a floppy _in_ the drive.... and access it .... and it
_still_ says "directory does not exist".

30 seconds _later_ is a different story: access is granted.

... what gives???

OK, so no autofs bug (a kernel bug if any); closing. :-)
