Why the bogus entry for the non-existent item appears in the automount directory ?

Solution Verified - Updated -

Issue

  • A bogus entry for the non-existent item appears in the automount directory.
When anyone looks for a /home/_info this action causes this entry to show up in /home. But this directory is not really there:
Access system call: 
joe: ls -ld /home/_info
dr-xr-xr-x 2 root root 0 Jun 11 17:02 /home/_info/
joe: ls -l /home/_info
ls: /home/_info: No such file or directory

Environment

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6
  • autofs-5.0.1-0.rc2.143.el5_5.6
