Comment 7 for bug 40189

I have a similar problem. I mount /home and few other directories from NFS, with mount definitions taken from NIS. I have to manually /etc/init.d/autofs restart after each boot.
This is with Ubuntu 8.04, and I think the problem started with 7.10, perhaps with 7.04.

'chmod -x /usr/sbin/NetworkManager*' didn't seem to help.
