Hi there everybody,
On our network, we authenticate our users via LDAP and use autofs to mount their home directories. This works fine in Fedora 8. However, in Fedora 10, when the user logs in, it also mounts the home folders of the users that previously logged onto the system as well.
This is what I see when I login as "user1" on Fedora 10
[user1@workstation etc]$ w
14:27:50 up 6:47, 3 users, load average: 0.24, 0.13, 0.09
USER TTY FROM LOGIN@ IDLE JCPU PCPU WHAT

user1 pts/2 :0.0 14:13 0.00s 0.28s 0.06s w
[user1@workstation etc]$ df

1465099264 78475264 1386624000 6% /home/user3
When I unmount the extraneous volumes, they are remounted within about 5 seconds. If I log out "user1", all volumes are unmounted.
This only happens on Fedora 10 workstations.
I also get these lines in "lsof | grep user1" on the workstations
gnome-ses 14393 user1 cwd DIR 0,23 1736 38935 /home/user1 (10.87.0.10:/var/home/users/user2)
Note: I am accessing the user1 folder but it seems to look to the NFS resource for user2
I get those lines for any open file on the NFS share.
/home /etc/auto.home --timeout 300
* -rw 10.87.0.10:/var/home/users/&
This only happens when I login to Gnome. When I'm in runlevel 3 and log in via text, this doesn't happen.
If anyone has any insight on the problem, it would be very much appreciated
