Here's a rotten thing about afs on windoze, using mickeysoft offfice.

If you want to create a hyperlink from one office doc to another, office
uses a unc for the link if its on a network drive.  Now on windoze1 the
unc becomes


Now user mary on windoze2 opens the file and attempts to use the link in
the document..  however, the afs redirector on that machine uses the unc


Get the picture.  All hyperlinks will fail becuase a unc isn't..  because
afs does use a universally available name.

Any chance in the near future of getting afs to be an ifs on windoze ? or
is there some other fix?
