Sorry, that was a DOH! moment.  I hadn't mounted /vicepa on boot.  I
seem to have the same problem on client and server now. 

In /afs/.myserver/: 
served1  served2  service  user

In /afs/myserver/:
service  user

`fs checkv` and `fs checkb` both print (on both client and server):
All volumeID/name mappings checked.

I can still read and write to /afs/.myserver/served[12] on both client
and server sides, and fs lsmount /afs/.myserver/served[12] returns
correctly in both places as well.
