I've been observing this for several months now.  The token loss almost
always corresponds with a period of high fileserver load.  For example,
moving several ripped CDs to the fileserver while playing another one.
Or when several machines launch their scheduled backup scripts at the
same time.  No, there is nothing running 'unlog'.  I can keep the token
around for weeks if I don't bother the fileserver too much.  A simple
'aklog' gets the token again, but any AFS operation that was going on
aborts due to the lack of tokens.  I have a cornucopia of Linux 2.6
versions, but the fileserver and clients are all OpenAFS 1.4.0.
