I have a festering suspicion, but no evidence yet, that this is not
always the case.

I'm now setup my little system the same.

Almost the same.

[root raven selinux]# showmount -e budgie
Export list for budgie:
/        *
/usr/src *

[root raven selinux]# lsmod|grep autofs
autofs4                40776  1

I guess you haven't got the autofs module loaded instead of autofs4 by
mistake.

[raven raven ~]$ mount
/dev/hda5 on / type ext3 (rw)
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
/dev/hda6 on /home type ext3 (rw)
/dev/hda7 on /work type ext3 (rw)
none on /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc type binfmt_misc (rw)
sunrpc on /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs type rpc_pipefs (rw)
automount(pid3463) on /net type autofs
(rw,fd=5,pgrp=3463,minproto=2,maxproto=4)

[raven raven ~]$ ls /net/budgie
autofs  cdrom  export71  initrd          lib         opt   sbin  usr
vmlinuz.old
bin     dev    floppy    initrd.img      lost+found  proc  sys   var

[raven raven ~]$ mount

sunrpc on /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs type rpc_pipefs (rw)
automount(pid3463) on /net type autofs
(rw,fd=5,pgrp=3463,minproto=2,maxproto=4)
budgie:/ on /net/budgie type nfs

budgie:/usr/src on /net/budgie/usr/src type nfs
(rw,nosuid,nodev,hard,intr,addr=10.49.97.33)

So I wonder what the different is between the setups?

Can you reproduce this David?

I'm stumped.
