    Windows: AFSInvalidateObject can overwrite input param
    AFSInvalidateObject() must not be called with an AFSObjectInformationCB
    pointer variable that it is not safe to overwrite as the function sets
    the input value to NULL if the invalidation is going to be performed
    asynchronously in a worker thread.
    In AFSEnumerateDirectory(), the following call took place:
      AFSInvalidateObject( &pDirNode->ObjectInformation,
    which requires a worker thread to process.  As a result, the
    ObjectInformation pointer was being set to NULL which detached the
    AFSObjectInformationCB from the AFSDirectoryCB.  That in turn produced
    an execption in AFSLocateName() which resulted in a resource not being
    freed that in turn produced a deadlock.
