Reverting to build 28 of the 4.4.0 kernel causes the issue to cease. Specifically, Linux 4.4.0-28-generic #47-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jun 24 10:08:35 UTC 2016 i686 I conclude there is a regression between build 28 and 31 which causes the automounter to malfunction, unless anybody can see something I did wrong in my configuration files (i.e. I'm calling it a bug, you ...
