The host OS is Fedora Core 3 (Linux 2.6.11) running AFS 1.3.8x.  The guest
OS is generally Windows (with AFS) or another Linux (with AFS).  The
problem occurs only on the host OS.  There is no filesystem sharing
enabled.  Linux's filesystem sharing is via an embedded samba anyway so
it's not kernel-driven.

I'll try and get this built and deployed later tonight/tomorrow.
