[OpenAFS] OpenAFS 1.3.63 on Windows XP

Anyone else had any problems with OpenAFS 1.3.63 on Windows XP? It
*was* working but now absolutely refuses to work - I can only try to map
drives from the AFS Client dialog and not the AFS Configuration dialog
(it doesn't populate the drive letter drop downs). I say try because
even though it creates the mapping it throws up a not accesible error,
coupled with not being able to find message text for message number 0x
(which seems a slightly odd message number to me) when I try to enter my
cell's directory (which is, incidently, the only cell that shows up in
the root; even though previously all the cells from CellServDB were
Other times as soon as you go into the AFS root mapping the cell shows
up, disapears, then afsd_service dies horribly. I've also seen an error
0xffffff come up too.
I can't think of anything specificly that I've done to break AFS so
wonderfuly. I suspect I may have done it while I was beating integrated
kerberos logins into submission. I've tried removing OpenAFS
completely: configuration et al. (even to the point of manualy removing
the last vestiges of OpenAFS from the registry) then re-installing -
still remains resolutely broken.
(The local cell works fine on the Linux boxes; I've not tried on any
other windows machines - I don't mind breaking my workstation, but if I
start on other people's they tend to get tetchy).
