[OpenAFS] Vista, OpenAFS 1.5.27, only shows openafs.org cell.

I'm having trouble getting OpenAFS for Windows 1.5.27 to work on Vista. 
  The AFS GUI tools correctly show my cell (mprc.mayo.edu) but when I 
map \afs only openafs.org shows up.  I can explicitly map my cell, using 
the GUI tools and that works.  Is this something to do with freelance mode?

When I do the exact same setup on XP, everything works.

Any ideas?

  * First install kfw-3-2-2.exe
    * Use (below) when asked for config files.
  * Then install OpenAFSforWindows-1-5-27.exe
    * Only the client is necessary.
    * For the CellServDB use (see below)
    * Use cell name mprc.mayo.edu
    * Disable "AFS crypt security" (it's slow)
    * Disable "Use DNS to Search for Cell Servers"
    * Enable "Use Integrated Logon".
    * You can accept the defaults for the rest of the options.
