*** This bug is a duplicate of bug 1626749 ***
I don't think this is a duplicate bug, or rather, I am not affected by
this one and am by #1626749. On my side, replacing $USER by my username
works. I have 2 identical lines in autofs, one with
credentials=/home/$USER/.credentials (fails as it looks for
/home/root/.credentials), one with
credentials=/home/myusername/.credentials (works just fine for me).

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
Confirmation of bug #1626749 regarding $USER token substitution
problem in autofs. Even when the $USER token was replaced with a valid
username for the share, autofs was unable to mount shares using
certificates, nor could sshfs. These programs reverted to password
authentication instead. The reason for mounting with certificates
instead of passwords is security, of course.
