The problem is (unfortunately) a regression in Windows 7 that the
OpenAFS developers cannot work around.  Microsoft has a reproducible
test case and they are working on identifying the root cause of the issue=

At the same time, a native AFS redirector is under development that will
permit AFS to be accessed without relying upon the Windows SMB and
Netbios subsystems.
