Just curious, is this "stall" a bug in the fileserver, or something
which happens for a good reason?  If so, what is the reason?

In general, I find that these sorts of unexplained stalls (both in the
client and on the server components) are the sorts of problems I have
the most trouble understanding.  It's probably asking too much to hope
for a simple FAQ answer "when AFS goes out to lunch, what is it eating?".
