And if it doesn't work, Chaskiel had previously observed that firefox als=
used threads, and perhaps afs_vnop_flock.c should want to look at the cli=
on Linux like it does on MacOS, BSD and Irix (which I can code up easily,=
again if you'd like to try it)

And yeah I'm sure someone already told you, but do yourself a favor,=20
configure backports, and get 1.4.1. You can even just make openafs an=20
exception and otherwise disable backports. But, you pretty much actively=20
don't want OpenAFS 1.3.x, despite debian believing it's ok.
