[OpenAFS] Unexpected behavior when renaming volumes

Hello All,

I have a strange observation. If I rename a volume and I create another 
volume using the old name, the two volumes have the same contents.

Changes to one volume are reflected in both volumes immediately. Though 
the volumes do not have the same ID, it looks like they are one and the 
same. I repeated the action several times with the same effect. Deleting 
and recreating both volumes solved the problem.

Is this the intended behavior or is there something wrong?


(More information: I am using OpenAFS 1.4.3 on Debian 4.0; all the vldb 
servers and all the servers with copies of the volumes are up. After 
each action I release the volumes)
