I got a similar problem with one of my Linux machines. I don't know if
this come from there, but i managed to get rid of it by erasing all
files in AFS cache each time i start/restart the openafs-client daemon.
Just adding a rm -rf /var/cache/openafs/* in /etc/init.d/openafs-client 
did work.
I don't know why, but openafs seems to be not that stable on Linux, as
it works perfectly under Windows and Solaris.
