This is my experience as well. I believe this was part of the original bug,
but the important issue is that because $USER does not work, automated file
system attaches using user credentials do not work. (Or to make them work,
we would have to have an autofs.conf file with special-case logic for every
possible user, contrary to the point of the utility.)

Or, we could drop the user certificate logins and use root login with share
passwords, defeating the security of the shares. Therefore the bug is a
security issue, and the priority should be upped accordingly.
