Have you read through: http://www.duke.edu/~jhv/answers/afs-ip-acls.html

Specifically the:
"An AFS file server treats ACL IP entries differently from principal
Changes to ACLs for principals are reflected almost right away.
Changes to ACLs for IP entries are *NOT*. "

This appears to work just fine for me in RC6 (on server and client.)
