With 1.45.18, after a while when I save a file from excel in windows, the
file doesn't seem to refresh on a neighboring Linux client. I have to
restart the Linux client to see the saved file.

There is a firewall but it hasn't changed in a long time.

Subject: [OpenAFS] windows explore refresh

I have noted recently that with openafs 1.4.01 the windows explore
interface does not seem to refresh itself properly when certain
actions occur. 

One use case is when you use the windows explore to create a new
folder. After the new folder is create, you do not see that it created
anything, unless you press f5 (or use view refresh). This leads to a
lot of folders being called 'New Folder', 'New Folder (2)', etc.

The other use case we noted windows refresh not working is we you
rename a folder. You can right click the folder, select rename, type
in the new name. When complete you see no change unless you refresh.

This seems like new behavior, I have not noticed this in the past with
files in afs.

Has anyone else noted this? Perhaps one of the windows updates
microsoft released last week as done some thing undesireable?

any thoughts?
