use 'strace -p <pid of famd>' and see what famd is doing.  this might
be helpful.  if that is not helpful, i would suggest running 'fstrace
setset', wait about 15-20 seconds, and then run 'fstrace dump'  (some
installs dont have fstrace or the afszcm.cat file which you will need).
save the output from fstrace dump somewhere.

i only suggest memcache since i thought famd might be a bit confused
with the activity from the afs disk cache.  btw, can you tell us a bit
more about your afs client configuration?

its been improved quite a bit.  i run it regularly--my home dir
is in afs.
