Ack, I never wrote the list about this, did I?
I saw this on a similar setup - Solaris 2.4, home directories automounted,
zsh 3.0 betas I think. I no longer have access to this system, so I can't
double check the details, but they're not terribly important.
The problem was an assumption made in zgetcwd(), which didn't hold with
the automounted home dirs. I don't seem to have the patch I made, and I'm
going on foggy memory here I'm afraid.
Anything that caused a zgetcwd() would end up *changing* the current

one mountpoint could have the same device number ("if (sbuf.st_dev == dev)
goto match;" around lines 178-179 in 3.0.4:compat.c). With sun's
automounter, with multiple directories from the same device mounted into
the same directory, this wasn't true. I assume my fix was to check the
