'fs' doesn't need to know anything about cell configuration; all it does is
make syscalls. So it's not a good indicator of anything.
It is possible and even likely that the cache manager's handling of a
CellServDB entry with no servers is different from that of the cellconfig
library routines. Try listing your cell with a set of valid servers, or
not at all.
