[OpenAFS] Hang on shutdown with OSX ?

I'm running openafs 1.4.8 on OSX 10.5, on a late 2008 MacBookPro  
(intel). I'm new to OSX (but familiar with AFS on linux) so please  
bear with me.

After installing AFS, I am experiencing occasional hangs when shutting  
down the machine - I have to do a hard reset.

I have a suspicion that AFS is causing this, but no proof. It tends to  
happen after I have been using AFS more extensively than when I  
haven't. I'm new not sure how to go about debugging this, or just  
testing if it is AFS causing the problem or not.

Is anyone else seeing this ?

How can I manually tell AFS to shutdown, so if I can see if it is  
hanging ? something akin to 'service afsd shutdown'

many thanks
