Right now OpenAFS 1.3.73 on WindowsXP sp2 runs fine, much better than 1.3.71 or
1.3.72, which crashed >6 times a day.
On Debian linux, the 1.3.70 from debian experimental (today updated to 1.3.73)
source runs fine as a client and fileserver til today, but only on kernel 2.4.27.
The next days I'll setup a debian sarge box with 2.6.9 and OpenAFS 1.3.73 for
testing, last time I built OpenAFS 1.3.71 from source.tar (the source .deb had a
bug). it seems to run fine, but with load on the client, the kernel modul hung
and nothing went well.

Seems the 1.3.74 will hit me in a few days. I'm looking forward to it :-)
