I am getting a weird message from automounter - can somebody tell me what it all means?

I am in the process of connecting a relatively old machine with the
2.2.9 kernel to my existing automount (am-utils 6.0.4) configuration.
I got NIS up and running and then when I turn on amd, I get the
following error messages in /var/log/amd.

Feb 6 13:03:13 umtanum amd[20676]/warn: last message repeated 100
Feb 6 13:03:14 umtanum amd[20676]/warn: amfs_toplvl_unmount retrying
/g in 1s

Repeated more or less every 100 seconds, as you might expect.

Any helpful advice?

Many thanks,
