Probably the easiest way to get more information about where
the problem is occurring is to get an autofs debug log during
the test procedure.

I see you already have LOGGING="debug" in your autofs
configuration so all that needs to be done is ensure syslog
is sending deamon level log messages to the log. I usually
just add a line like:

*.daemon                   /var/log/daemon

to the syslog configuration. I always "touch /var/log/daemon"
before restarting syslog as a matter of habit. I don't know if
rsyslog will create the log file if it doesn't already exist.

Basically, if we don't see a second mount request in the log
at all then the issue is occuring before the login process is
attempting to access the home directory. If we do see such a
request then we may be able to see where autofs blocks (if it
does block) such as when calling mount(8) (although more likley
