Ah, yes, that makes sense!

I see a lot of "byte-range lock/unlock ignored; make sure no one else is 
running this program" messages, which I presume are harmless.

I also see in one place "Tokens for user of AFS id NNNNN for cell teragram.com 
have expired", shortly before a support incident where this user lost access 
in the manner already described. However, this occurred at 2:30pm, for a user 
who arrived and authenticated at ~9am (and our ticket lifetimes are at the 
default of 10h).
