Technically I think like the link I included it's between Solaris 9 pre 
9/04 and Solaris 9 9/04, but I didn't actually upgrade anything until

Not really. Like I said, "we don't know that...."

If all you use /cache for is the afs cache, it's a warnign which doesn't

cache partition that you can end up deadlocking.
