[OpenAFS] volumes in different cells

I still have some trouble accessing volumes in a cell.

When I use the windows client and map a drive ("drive letters" tab)

I use :
Drive letter: Drive K:
AFS Path: \afs\csc.depauw.edu\home\cowboy
Description: csc-cowboy

this drive will just work.

When I map another drive :
Drive letter: Drive L:
AFS Path: \afs\afs-2.csc.depauw.edu\home\cowboy
Description: afs2-cowboy

this drive won't work

in cmd.exe
DIR K: gives me a correct directory listing

The system cannot find the file specified.

Any ideas where to start looking for what is wrong ?
(in case it is a problem with the 2nd cell (afs-2.csc.depauw) then where can I
find what I did wrong ?)

Status       Local     Remote                    Network

OK           G:        \\afs\all                 Microsoft Windows Network
OK           K:        \\afs\csc-cowboy          Microsoft Windows Network
OK           L:        \\afs\afs2-cowboy         Microsoft Windows Network
OK                     \\afs\afs2-cowboy         Microsoft Windows Network
OK                     \\afs\all                 Microsoft Windows Network
OK                     \\afs\csc-cowboy          Microsoft Windows Network
The command completed successfully.

When I use "fs mkmount" to create a mountpoint :
\\afs\all\afs2-cowboy instead of \\afs\afs-cowboy then things seem to work.

     Thomas Edison gets an idea, and his brother Timmy says,
