afs-newcell doesn't create /etc/openafs/server/ThisCell.  The install
script for openafs-fileserver does, based on the debconf question asked
during installation.  It does overwrite /etc/openafs/ThisCell with the new
cell that you set up, but only after everything succeeds; until then,
/etc/openafs/ThisCell is set by the install script for openafs-client,
again based on a debconf question.

I'm suspicious that afs-newcell actually succeeded since it looks like
pt_util still didn't get run.  Is there anything in /var/lib/openafs/db,
in particular a prdb.DB0 file?  Was there any output from afs-newcell
related to pt_util or any other failures?
