More on the problem,  of pwd failing on Solaris 10 in
some situations. It appears to only occur when there is a mount
point in a higher level directory that points at a nonexistent
volume. Solaris 10 is doing something different with lookup.
The following can be used for a test in an AFS directory:
fs mkm badmp nonexistent.vol
fs: warning, volume nonexistent.vol does not exist in cell ....
mv x y
pwd:cannot determine current directory!
The circumvention for now is to not have any bad mount points,
but there is still some bug.
P.S. RT wont let me login as guest
