Alternate UserDirs don't work intermittantly

           Summary: Alternate UserDirs don't work intermittantly
           Product: Apache httpd-1.3
           Version: 1.3.27
          Platform: Sun
               URL: http://www.phil.uu.nl/~js/cd/
        OS/Version: Solaris
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Major
          Priority: Other
         Component: Other mods
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: js@phil.uu.nl


I've got two groups of users, "staff" and "students".

The users' WWW dirs are nfs automounted as follows:

# /etc/auto_master - Master map for automounter
/homepages/staff auto_staffpages  -ro,hard,intr
/homepages/stud auto_studpages  -ro,hard,intr

# /etc/auto_staff - WWW directory map for automounter
#
*       staffserver:/users/&/WWW

# /etc/auto_stud - WWW directory map for automounter
#
*       studentsserver:/users/&/WWW

Apache's UserDir is configured as follows:

    UserDir /homepages/stud /homepages/staff

Now the "funny" thing that happens is that when loading
framesets on clients within the network - fast clients -
the pages in the frameset are reported 404, even though
they exist.

What I see happening in the Apache logs on such a request
to load ~user/someitem is an error loading
/hompages/stud/user/someitem, even though
/hompages/staff/user/someitem exists.  But Apache apparently
never bothers to check the second alternative, and reports
an early failure.

If I reverse the order in UserDir, other users are in trouble.
Students pages work fine now, complex staff pages don't.

I think this is new to Apache 1.3.27.  We never noticed it
before.
