I have had a similar problem some time ago. You should do the following:
1. Wait. You don't say whether you log on from within the local network
or over the Internet. Wait maybe five to ten minutes and have ethereal
or tcpdump report what is happening.
2. Try a different cell, e.g. stacken.kth.se and look whether the same
problem occurs.

This is because the afsd interacts directly with a kernel module and
that cannot be removed at that point without taking down the whole
kernel. (I think someone once told me the story like that.)
