        What a coincidence, there is a symbolic link involved here. I have a
workstation, and a gateway/fileserver machine. I export /usr on the
fileserver (slave) and use amd to mount individual directories under
/usr in /mnt/slave/ on the workstation. Scattered throughout the
workstation are symbolic links to /mnt/slave/foo, which kick amd in
gear, and make those directories available where I want them. 

        I realize that this is not an ideal situation, but it's also very
common, so if someone is going to find a bug this way, it might as well
be me. :)
