I don't follow.  osi_file.c line 47 is:=20

afile =3D (struct osi_file *) osi_AllocSmallSpace(sizeof(struct osi_file)=

I put printfs around all instances of osi_AllocSmallSpace in the src/afs/=
directory and came up with this one on account of not seeing the output o=
the second printf in my system log.  It seems that sizeof(struct osi_file=
was larger than the default AFS_SMALLOCSIZ, but I don't know why not on o=
suse boxes. I didn't have very good luck with the backtrace (even with th=
--enable-debug-kernel and ksymoops).
