[OpenAFS] Can't Map AFS drive

We're having some issues with AFS 1.2.10 and=20
1.3.84 on a XP SP2 lab image.  We're using=20
cross-realm Kerberos authentication to get the K5=20
tgt and KfW Leash32 to get the K4 tgt.   We use=20
afsshare to map the user's specific home=20
directory to the "home" submount.  The OpenAFS=20
tray app shows the "X:\" drive mapped to their=20
AFS home directory with a checkmark next to=20
it.  When the script runs "net use X: \\afs\home"=20
the workstation slows to a snails pace, even=20
though no process shows high utilization in Task=20
Manager.  The drive never mounts and the machine becomes unresponsive.

Does anyone have any idea why this is=20
happening?  More importantly, what's not=20
configured correctly and how do I remedy it?

I read the afs-issues.txt file and there was=20
mention of a "afsmap" utility that I thought=20
might help but it's not in the .exe or .msi installer of 1.3.84.

Thanks in advance!
