For the sake of closure, I'm blaming this one on hardware, since in the 
process of evacuathing all the afs volumes from this system two xfs 
filesystems tore themselves to pieces and were never heard from again. 
That, and I coudn't ever replicate the corruption on another server, or 
even this one once I replaced the memory and raid controller.
