	During the slowing down of the local activity the afsd is working  
and the
AFS File sytem is alive and accessible. The various servers are  
alive. The only fact I noticed is the console message connected to  
the first access to one of the cells I use:

Jan 31 10:35:21 User kernel[0]: afs: Lost contact with file server in cell cells.it (multi-homed address; other same-host  
interfaces maybe up)

The message does not appear in the successive access to that cell,  
and the local activity remains slow
