I would like to try them out. One thing just occured to me :

My /etc/openafs/cacheinfo contains :


This is different from /var/cache/openafs (or whatever it was) because my /var 
happens to be ReiserFS.

/dev/sda2 on / type ext3 (rw,errors=remount-ro)
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
/dev/sda1 on /boot type ext3 (rw)
/dev/sda5 on /home type reiserfs (rw)
/dev/sda7 on /tmp type reiserfs (rw)
/dev/sda9 on /usr type ext3 (rw)
/dev/sda8 on /var type reiserfs (rw)
/dev/sda10 on /vicepa type ext2 (rw)
/dev/sda11 on /vicepb type ext2 (rw)
usbfs on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw)
AFS on /afs type afs (rw)

Is there something in Debian packages that *assumes* that the cache is located 
in /var ?
