Follow-up Comment #1, bug #22301 (project findutils):

bug #9043 related to a spurious mutation warning, as you know, since you
diagnosed it.   This looks like a wholly different problem, also involving the
Sun automounter.  Aside from that it's not obvious that they have much in

The evidence that you present in your transcript is that find has done
something to cause the aoutomounter to mount an additional filesystem.  I'm
not sure what action on the part of find had that effect on the automounter,
but I can't see that such an action could be "wrong" on find's part.

Specifically, was there an existing file which matched the criteria expressed
in the predicates you gave which was not printed (since in this case the
defautl -print is in effect)?   Was there a file whose name was printed which
did _not_ match the criteria?   If either of those things is true, then there
is a bug (unless the file appeared in or disappeared from a directory after
find searched it; Unix filesystems generally don't offer read isolation).

Now, if on the other hand you have found that find is failing to search
(recurse into, effectively) an existing directory which was mounted at the
time find was started, then yes, that looks like a bug (since in theory the
unsearched directory could contain a filename of interest, as we're searching
for glob patterns in your example).  If that's the case, could you please
indicate the result of stat(2)ing the affected directory both before and
after?   Is the initial link count 2 or less?  What is the final link count?
