Downgrading via the MSI requires an uninstall and re-install.

The AFS menu is conditionally displayed if the file exists within
AFS.  That is determined by the following:

 (1) check to see if the AFS Service is running.
     if not, disable the menu

 (2) issue a pioctl call to ask the cache manager where the object
     is located.  If the AFS cache manager indicates the object is
     located in a cell then the menu is displayed.  Otherwise the
     menu is disabled.

If you are seeing a delay you should be able to replicate it with
"fs whereis <pathname>"
