autofs should depend on statd in upstart
  start statd
to verify

It looks like this is a bug in statd... which is just plain wrong :)

With upstart do you have to teach other services about your service?

eg autofs needs statd. statd says "start on (started portmap or mounting TYPE=nfs)" which I assume needs to go to "start on (started portmap or started autofs or mounting TYPE=nfs)"

I checked and found no "depends"-like stanza that could be placed in autofs
