Thanks to all who responded. I am not sure which fix worked but here

>From - Tom Erikson

Added -rw to the end of each line in my auto_master i.e.

/tilde auto_tilde -rw


>From - Fischer Jens

Turn off execute permissions on all automount files.

Also, thanks to Mark Almeida for introducing me to replaceable keys. (I
have to thank him as he is my boss ;)
