Don't CC me on replies. I read openafs-info.

If you're going to move, you'll probably want (not yet released) 1.3.74 
which will fix an issue with locally created directory objects not having 
the correct size and so appearing corrupt, as a consequence of a less 
ambitious fix in the last version. I have no meaningful input on 2.4 
versus 2.6; Perhaps someone else can speak about it.

So the question then is what reference is being held when it's no longer 
valid, and how.
