[OpenAFS] recursive address error

I setup an openafs cell on one system on the inside of my network,
running on OpenBSD.
Things worked fine, I've moved several gigabytes of data onto it.
I decided I wanted to try making a second server on my laptop, so I
could have RO volumes available when elsewhere to cut down on bandwidth
and perhaps even be available when offline.
So I succeeded in setting up my laptop to be an openafs server
internally, and since have roamed to several clients and back, finding
that the openafs servers were not so happy on my laptop anymore.
Through several trials and errors, I've finally realized I have a
recursive address error situation.
The fileserver says this:
Thu Dec 8 11:31:51 2005 File server starting
Thu Dec 8 11:31:52 2005 afs_krb_get_lrealm failed, using fries.net.
Thu Dec 8 11:31:52 2005 VL_RegisterAddrs rpc failed; The IP address
exists on a different server; repair it
Thu Dec 8 11:31:52 2005 VL_RegisterAddrs rpc failed; See VLLog for details
Thu Dec 8 11:31:52 2005 Fatal error in library initialization, exiting!!
Then the bosserver starts a slavager:
12/08/2005 11:31:52 SALVAGING FILE SYSTEM PARTITION /vicepa (device=vicepa)
12/08/2005 11:32:08 ***Forced salvage of all volumes on this partition***
12/08/2005 11:32:08 3 nVolumesInInodeFile 84
12/08/2005 11:32:08 CHECKING CLONED VOLUME 536870925.

12/08/2005 11:32:09 blue.test (536870961) updated 11/29/2005 08:32

12/08/2005 11:32:16 Salvaged blue.test (536870961): 44464 files, 486125
12/08/2005 11:32:16 SALVAGING OF PARTITION /vicepa COMPLETED
Which completes ok, but then the fileserver is unhappy with the address
on the laptop again, and so it reiterates the above, ad nauseum.
How do I make the the fileserver happy, and how do I debug this to know
what it is trying to do so I can make it happy?
