 	Hello ,

 	When 3 large rsync processes and around 40 ftpd processes access 
afs for a long time ( around 12 hours) on a linux 2.4.31 system , /afs 
starts pointing to some random file in afs like it is a dead symbolic 
link,for example /afs >/some/folder/in/afs/. The "link" is random.
Cding to /afs results in "no such file or directory". Processes that were 
accessing afs before that problem continue to do so untill they finish.

Restarting the afs client makes the problem go away. Using disk cache the 
problem never appeared.

 	Best regards ,
