[OpenAFS] Symantec AntiVirus 9 problems

We recently upgraded to version 9 of Symantec's AntiVirus
and now some (not all!) users are unable to use the Cygwin X server
via the Windows AFS client.

On the 2 machines I have looked at, the afsd_service.exe process
and "System" start chewing up all available CPU time and things
run very slooooooooowly.

We tried turning off the anti-virus on one of the affected machines
(XP and 1.3.71 I think) and the problem went away.

Anyone know anything about this?
