So you have gid-based PAGs; do you know if your kernel also has keyring
support? 'keyctl show' should show an afs PAG key, if we're using that.

We've seen some odd behavior in some situations when gid and keyring
PAG tracking are both in use. I've never seen issues with it and SSH,
though, and if your tokens are lasting longer than 10 minutes, that's
probably not the problem.
