*** Visiting files in some auto-mounted directories causes Emacs to print
`Error reading dir-locals: (file-error "Read error" "is a directory" ...'
This can happen if the auto-mounter mistakenly reports that
.dir-locals.el exists and is a directory. There is nothing Emacs can
do about this, but you can avoid the issue by adding a suitable entry
to the variable `locate-dominating-stop-dir-regexp'. For example, if
the problem relates to "/smb/.dir-locals.el", set that variable
to a new value where you replace "net\\|afs" with "net\\|afs\\|smb".
(The default value already matches common auto-mount prefixes.)
