by "destination" you are referring to the afs fileserver containing 
the destination afs volume?

if my assertion is true, then you should not be running anything on
the console, this includes x-windows or any other pretty graphical
gui.  if the server crashes, then you will be able to see the panic/oops
unless the machine wedges in which case we have to try something else.
try the simply things first though.

you keep saying your cache gets corrupted.  this leads me to think that
your afs client machine is crashing and not the afs file server.

is the fileserver and client the same machine?

how about that network diagram?
