I just tested it on a Solaris 10 box here. Unfortunately there seems to
be a problem:

./find: /foo/censored changed during execution of ./find (old device number 
74711044, new device number 74448942, filesystem type is nfs) [ref 807]

I don't know why the filesystem type is nfs here, it is under control of
the automounter. The mntent is:

foo:/export/censored   /foo/censored nfs 
nosuid,retry=6,timeo=50,xattr,dev=470002e       1101049221

I cannot (yet) figure out when and how it decides to use "nfs" instead
of "autofs"
