We did that :

# cp -a /etc/openafs /etc/openafs.BAK
# apt-get remove openafs-krb5 openafs-client openafs-fileserver --purge
# apt-get -t squeeze-backports install openafs-fileserver openafs-client
# /etc/init.d/openafs-client stop
# /etc/init.d/openafs-fileserver stop
# cp -a /etc/openafs.BAK/* /etc/openafs/
# /etc/init.d/openafs-client stop
# /etc/init.d/openafs-fileserver stop

Apparently, now everything works.
