CentOS 7 autofs flakyness

I have a user who couldn't get in via WinSCP to a server. Got him to log
in via putty, and that was fine. But he still couldn't get in the other
way. At my manager's suggestion, I restarted autofs... and everything
worked.

Note that his home director5y was already automounted via NFS, after he
logged in via putty. We've seen other, similar oddities with NFS. Is
anyone else seeing this, or have a clue?

Btw, there were no errors showing in /var/log/messages, journal, I saw
this in dmesg: task mount.nfs:83892 blocked for more than 120 seconds, but
that was from four days ago, and my user just reported the problem
yesterday, though he hadn't tried to use WinSCP in about a month.
