I've found 1.5.10 much better than 1.5.9.  I can now run ntbackup and 
write bkf files (including files over 4GB) into AFS without getting 
"delayed write failed" messages, I can use dd to write and read files 
and not have it crap out part of the way through the file, and I haven't 
see afsd_service eat all CPU on the machine.
