Yes. NTP is running and synched on the clients, file server, and DB servers.

Yes. We're using pam_afs_session.so to do the setup (and MIT's libnss-afspag 
to quell name-lookup errors).

> Does same use login more then once a the same  time?

Yes. In my case, I have a desktop system on which I'm logged in locally via 
X11, and remotely several times via SSH (individual sessions, I never figured 
out screen(1)).

I should note that the SSH sessions are particularly prone to the 
short-lived-token problem, much more so than the X11 session. It's not 
uncommon that I'll run into it several times in an evening.

Of course, as I understand this to be the current practice.
