Comment 17 for bug 573919

This is the same bug as 590570, but this one has been around longer.

I think the real issue underlying this bug is in bug 525154 which relates to a race condition while starting portmap which in turn starts statd. This only seems to be an issue if you have /var as a separate mount point where /var is not mounted when statd is started.

Post 13 on bug 525154 seems to solve this issue, but it is only a workaround, it does not solve the race condition if my understanding is correct.
