Since it appears that the operation of copying a new CellServDB over an 
existing one, while a file server is in operation, is "undefined", does 
your "bug" fit into that "undefined" category?

We are running:  OpenAFS 1.2.11 built  2004-01-10

Describe "normal".  ;)

Did you know your bug can bring down an entire cell, requiring all the 
clients to reauthenticate?
