So, what would be helpful to track this down?  Since the client is in
charge of the tokens, it seems that the problem might be in the client
somewhere, except for the correlation of the token-loss events with a
loaded fileserver.  I've never had to debug AFS before, and only have
so many hours in the day, so bear with me.
