[OpenAFS] recursive address error

Since nobody had any thoughts on this, I'll follow up for future list
I did end up finding the solution, though I'm not entirely pleased to
have found it, and I'm still not quite sure what to make of it.
After having wiped my laptop clean of any openafs server bits, and set
it up several times to no avail, I finally figured out that there is one
thing I can change which makes it work just fine, and if I put that
change back, it does not work until I remove that change.
This change I am talking about is adding an IP onto a gif tunnel.
If I have an ethernet IP of 10.0.0.93 and setup the server to work, it
If I add a gif tunnel IP of 10.9.9.2, and do a 'bos shutdown localhost
-localauth' and then a 'bos startup localhost -localauth' it falls into
the below pattern.
If I remove the gif tunnel IP and then redo the 'bos shutdown..' 'bos
startup...' it works again.
