We had the "Too many levels of symbolic links" error some years ago,
while using a combination of automounting nfs areas and private fs name
spaces to get a private /tmp for each job.  In the end we had to give up
using automount, and implement a manual procedure that mounts/umounts
the needed nfs areas.
