Hi Jonathan,

Well it is good to hear that someone else is having a similar problem!

So a bug in client/cache manager?
Why would it be triggered now?

It seems as though the server or the network must be involved somehow. 
Scientific Linux 6 openafs-client versions have made steps through 1.6.2 
- 1.6.17 while the server was running Wheezy with no problems.  Now 
suddenly the older versions are not reliable.  I can't explain it. :(
