And an update, a reboot got rid of the stale file handle.  But on 
shop.coyote.den, the /home directory can be seen for an ls -l /net/shop,
but if an ls -l /net/shop/home is done, its a null return, and if I add 
gene to /net/shop/home/gene, it doesn't exist.  But only on this one 
machine..  The other two work normally.  All have identical auto.master 
files with "/net -hosts" enabled.

Thanks folks.
