Yeah, it is.

Oh, okay, you're using an old enough version that the error handling is
different.  You'll get that error if /proc/fs/openafs/afs_ioctl doesn't
exist or if opening it fails.

Maybe something is causing the ioctl interface to occasionally not work?
Or you're running out of file descriptors?
