we'we discovered a small bug related to mount points which has appeared
in some recent windows client.  Testing with 1.5.74;  mount points 
cannot be created
neither from the explorer shell nor from the command prompt if referring to
an UNC path.  This worked with older clients (like 1.5.59).

Mapping the afs path to a drive letter and then make a mount point works.
It's the UNC path that makes it fail.

Is this a known bug or should we file a bug report?
