I tested this again on a machine without NIS and it is broken, too.
Looks like the %S substitution for the homes share is broken.
Is nobody using %S ?
I want to be able to connect the home directories of

Jeremy, I looked at the source, but it doesn't look easy enough
for me to fix this. Would you mind to revert (or fix) the changes ?
