Bug Description

My physical computer lab uses AutoFS home drives (per https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Autofs#Wildcard_characters). If any user tries to run chromium browser, it fails.

I assume it is related to these:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/snapd/+bug/1662552
But that says a fix was released, but seems toi only work for NFS home drives
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/snapd/+bug/1782873
That ones is reported as a dupe but it's not, AutoFS home drives still don't work.

$ chromium -v
