[OpenAFS] gcc reading beyond end of file on AFS

Hi there,

   I cannot explain technically what is going on. But I understand that  
this is a bug in open afs, which I found a little while ago. If you  
need a working version of afs to allow builds, you can use the arla  
client. (I believe they already had this problem but fixed it.) I do  
not know the schedule for a bug fix for openafs, but am interested to  
know as well.

		see you, RD Schaffer
