automount[xxxx]: failed to mount /media/.directory

This annoying message keeps popping up in my logs. Any ideas how to stop 
it? I have been googling for hours now... My system is bleeding edge 
svn, and I have setup autofs per spec. It is set to the default of 
automounting cd's, which it does quite well. I know how to filter it 
from my logs, but I would like to know why it does this and if there is 
a better fix.

Thanks in advance for your help.
