Hi David,

Are you accessing the AFS folders via a UNC path (\\afs\...) or a mapped 
drive (H:..., etc)?

I saw this issue only when trying to use a UNC path, as advised by the 
docs. When I went back to mapped drives, refreshes are always immediate. I 
reported this bug: http://grand.central.org/rt/Ticket/Display.html?id=50864 
There's a bit more technical info in RT from Jeff Altman on this problem.

Cheers, Stephen
