Steve, at some point I must have found that libtirpc used Thread
Specific Data (TSD) that was problematic because I had seen crashes on
exit as I've seen with other libraries.
Using the TSD functionality isn't a problem unless the clean up
function set at creation belongs to the library itself, which in some
cases simply isn't present when the pthreads clean up code is called at
If that's not no longer a problem or I was mistaken in the beginning
then I can remove the workaround from autofs, otherwise I'll need to
update the workaround to also try to pre-open the new library.
Ummm ... I think I'm also be guilty of not raising this upstream ... oo
