[OpenAFS] cache settings -- how large is too large?

I'm hoping someone out there has experimented with the disk cache size
settings to find a sweet spot. I believe that the problems I'm seeing with
afs are related to cache size -- when copying, say, a 200 meg files from an
afs mount to /tmp, a 50 meg cache setting probably isn't helping things.

I'm worried about setting the value too high, however, so I was wondering
how high people have gone before seeing detrimental effects.
