I tried 1.4.1-rc2 on both Linux and Windows clients, and it didn't have 
any effect on the problem at hand.  What I did notice was that the 
problem came into play as soon as Windows modified the file.  The only 
thing I could see on the server was that it changed the permissions to 
777 from 640.  As soon as that happened, the Mac client wasn't able to 
see the file without completely restarting OpenAFS.

Just to be thorough, I upgrading the server to 1.4.1-rc2 as well, which 
didn't seem to affect this problem at all, and actually made the entire 
test network worse.  There's a huge delay with the Windows clients, and 
a minor one with the Linux clients when first connecting to an AFS 
directory.  I'm not sure what I can do to troubleshoot this as there's 
no errors in any logs.
