Thanks again.  Could you suggest the proper channel for filing/referring =
to an existing bug report in Windows?  I checked connect.microsoft.com =
but did not see Windows 7 as an option.  This information might also =
help others who run into this, since it's admittedly a pretty serious =
issue for anyone trying to use OpenAFS/Windows 7.

There are no acceptable workarounds.  I cannot stress enough how
important it is to file bug reports with Microsoft on this issue.
OpenAFS cannot solve it without Microsoft fixing the regression that was
introduced between Vista/2008 and Win7/2008-R2.
