I'm a little doubtful of the accuracy of this; I'm running server
binaries compiled from Debian's openafs-1.2.11-1 source and diffs;
when I run rxdebug on my servers, I get this result:

     > rxdebug xxxxx 7005 -version
     Trying 130.88.xxx.xx (port 7005):
     AFS version:  OpenAFS 1.2.10 built  2004-01-12

(the source was released on January 11 at

Of course, the number reported is the one in the compiled source;
someone has released a version which contains the file configure-libafs
apparently generated from an old template.  If I look at the debian
binary for vlserver from the same site, I find this:

     OpenAFS 1.2.10 built  2004-01-11

Admittedly Debian's build procedure is a little different, but
can it not be that other binaries have the wrong version number
built into them?
