[OpenAFS] Hang on shutdown with OSX ?

I am beginning to suspect that AFS isn't the issue here, but something 
else. I have taken to shutting down AFS by hand before shutting down my 
machine recently, and last night I suffered another crash, but AFS 
shutdown fine.

In another post I showed that some some messages from 
/var/log/system.log "Logitech Control Daemon" was playing badly at 
shutdown. Searching around on the web does suggest others have had 
issues with this. I've now un-installed and will see how things go.

Thanks everyone for their help, and if it proves AFS is not to blame I 
do apologies ;)

cheers Chris
