The AFS client caches volumename:volumeID# -- when asked to 
process the mount point it assumed old volumeID#, which no longer 

The cache expires every two hours by default, IIRC.

In any case, issue "fs checkv" to force an update of the cached 
name:ID maps, and I suspect that will fix it.

Just for conceptual clarity, a mount point contains only the name 
of the volume to be mounted.  That is, it wasn't necessary to 
delete the mount point, since the newly created mount point 
contains the same information, i.e. contains the same volume
