Sorry, a bit delayed now. But I just installed 1.5.21 and retried it.
The output to the requested info stays the same, no effect of restarting
or not restarting OpenAFS service after VPN is closed.

Seems to be suitable, but while Cicsco VPN is active, I don=B4t do anthin=
with OpenAFS. After stopping and closing VPN I assume OpenAFS to be back
up, like all other networking.
I can browse site, I can resolve URLs, I can do all like normal, but
OpenAFS is not working.
Just a reboot brings it back to life (and yes, this looks like broken
network - I just can=B4t find it).
