I have been experiencing the exact same thing, on all of the Macs that
I own, for a long, long time.

It happens infrequently enough that I can never be sure that AFS is
the problem.  I'm not sure how to debug it either (to confirm or deny that
AFS is the problem would be a good first start), but if anyone has any
ideas, I'd be glad to hear them.
