In the interests of solving the _real_ problem ... I am wondering if
any of the following things would help:
- Using -fakestat or -fakestat-all as an option to afsd
- Using -dynroot, and distributing an empty CellServDB and using -afsdb
to look up cell info. This prevents you from having a bazillion foreign
cells in /afs, which in my experience really makes the finder unhappy
(although -fakestat and -fakestat-all help in this regard).
- Make your afs root volume have a small number of AFS cells.
I did run into a problem where the OS X client would never completely
time out ... although that was with one of the older RC releases, and I
never got a chance to completely track it down and submit a bug
