I saw this on -users but hadn't commented on it yet. I just committed
a similar patch to fix this including a comment in the code as to why we
check the f_blocks and f_size values.
I don't think it's a good idea to use autofs for a recordings directory,
I use 'soft' instead, but that's up to you. No matter what the reason,
we shouldn't trigger things to autoexpire if it appears the total disk
space is 0.
I'll get this into -fixes a little later today also.
