[OpenAFS] Files updated from one client not updated on others

Here is my scenario: If I update a file (say, with a text editor) in my 
home user volume from one client, the change doesn't show up on any 
other client or server. The file will appear changed on this particular 
client, so I'm assuming it's getting into the cache. If I "fs flush 
file" on another machine, the changes show up on the other machine.

Conversely, if I change a file on any other machine, it doesn't show up 
on the problem machine, even if I "fs flush file".

I've checked the basics, time is in sync. Everything was working most of 
today, and I haven't done any upgrades in a week or so. I have another 
client that is configured almost identically, same kernel, os, network 
location, and it has none of these problems.

Client and Server is Debian Sarge, Openafs 1.3.81-3sarge1
Server is 2.6.8-2-k7
Client is 2.6.8-3-k7, but I've tried 2.6.8-2-k7 also, and it's the same 

I realize I have not yet begun to debug, can anyone give me pointers on 
where to go from here?
