    umask was 027. Change to 022 or 0 before restarting automountd.

Original question:

>I applied 104654-03 yesterday on several 2.5.1 machines. This is the
>autofs patch. Any new mounts on the clients are accessible by root
>but not by ordinary users. I've backed out the patch and restarted
>automountd but the problem persists. Note that this problem does not
>exist on the one machine that was never patched nor does it affect a
>mount which existed prior to the patch.
