/afs/.:mount is a special magic directory that can be used to refer to
specific volumes via a short path; it's briefly mentioned in the afsd(8)
manpage. You can't get rid of it.

Of course, it's possible you're on a platform or version, etc, where
that magic directory doesn't exist, and you did actually create such a
directory, but that would be quite a coincidence :)
