Only partly solved.
I do not know why, but the roaming profile folder does need
system:anyuser rl  ACLs to work under Windows 8.
Setting the Domain Controller System on rl ACL does not work, it needs

If I remove the system:anyuser ACL, windows 8 denies my access to the
profile path and logs in with local cached profile and does not write
back on logout any data to OpenAFS path.
If I set system:anyuser rl  on my profile path, Windows 8 does load
profile from OpenAFS path and saves back data on logout to that path,
and all files do have the correct UserID.

I do use Windows 8 64bit, OpenAFS 1.7.2119 and "obtain tokens on login".
It looks like windows tries to lookup profile ahead of obtaining tokens.

Anyone using Win8 on OpenAFS roaming profiles at all yet?
