[OpenAFS] 1.4.2fc3 and vos move

I've been running a small single server cell on 1.4.0-rc4 for some time 
and am just now adding a second server to the mix.  I installed 1.4.2fc2 
on the second machine and successfully moved several volumes to it with 
no problems.

Last week when fc3 came out I upgraded the second machine from fc2 to 
fc3.  Migrating additional volumes now seems to work, but the process 
fails at the end when it tries to clean up the source:

user@host:~$ vos move home.user server1 /vicepa server2 /vicepa

Failed to create a transaction on the source volume 536870984
   VOLSER: volume is busy
vos move: operation interrupted, cleanup in progress...
clear transaction contexts
move incomplete - attempt cleanup of target partition - no guarantee
cleanup complete - user verify desired result

This leaves server1 in a bit of disarray as well with **** Could not 
attach volume 536870984 ****
in the output of vos listvol.  I believe the contents of this volume are 
now empty, and have simply removed the volume entry in /vicepa to clean 
it up (this may be a bad thing though).

However, as mentioned above, the volume is fine on server2 and behaves 
as expected.

Did something change between fc2 and fc3 that may have caused this?
