Hm, maybe later. I will see if i can reproduce the bug somehow on one of
our testing servers and if i succeed, i will try the fix. Otherwise it
would be very difficult to see if the fix helped :)

Thank you for confirming that. I think i can work with that, until i can
confirm the fix is functional. In fact i am already taking regular dumps
of my test installation at home.

I really like the afs concepts and i've been itching to try it for a
long time now. Having to dump it would have been a real pity.

Many Thanks
