Stopping GDM from auto-mounting autofs home dirs

Noticed first in Karmic that even if the simple GDM login manager was
enabled with no user list a lot of autofs home dirs were automatically
mounted when the system booted. I'd like to avoid this since having
hundreds of Ubuntu desktops hitting filers without an intent to use the
mounts could cause a resource issue. We got around this by removing gdm2
in Karmic and installing gdm-legacy instead, but this packages doesn't
appear on in Lucid anymore and most likely never will.
Is there a way to only have GDM mount autofs home dirs on user login?
May be a bit slower, but the extra few seconds aren't really an issue
