I should note that on MacOS 10.3.9, I've had this problem, reliably, 
after extended use (e.g., several days of reads/writes). For me, it's 
tended to cooccur with random crap at the beginning of files (e.g., the 
name of the AFS volume overwriting the corresponding initial characters 
of the file). I've confirmed that these problems only appear in the AFS 
volume as viewed on the Mac, not as viewed from other platforms.
