Hi all

I have a problem. My /home and some other folders are automounted nfs shares via autofs. When I try to checkout form any cvs repository in my homefolder ($HOME/tmp) cvs will randomly tell me smomething like: cvs [checkout aborted]: could not chdir to /auto/data/myuser/tmp: No such file or directory
note here that /auto/data is also an automounted nfs share.
My /home is actually also mounted to /auto/home and then symlinked to /home... The strange thing is that this happens rather randomly. It will pick a seemingly random share mounted in /auto, think my user homefolder is under that and try to checkout to that dir. Sometimes it tries /auto/home and the checkout succeeds. If i create it says it is missing (e.g. /auto/data/myuser/tmp) it will checkout into that -- even though I'm in /home/myuser/tmp when writing the command.

Note: if i try from a dir in the root file system (e.g. /tmp) it will always succeed)

Can anyone tell me what's going on? Why do cvs even try to change dir before pulling the data?

Best regards
