Re: New sid box.

I'm trying it as a normal user.

Somthing I found related, it seems autofs is mounting my homedir as 
readonly, and a "mount" command is putting some very odd characters in
the "options" field.

The filesystem is exported RW and normal default options.  If I mount
the filesystem by hand it's fine...
