Thanks for everyones replies. I did test what you suggested and it
does fail. Looking back at the OpenSSH code I see signs of them
changing the logic behind this a couple of years ago. I'm surprised no
one else has tripped across this, but I'll approach this as being an
issue with OpenSSH and not anything weird OpenAFS is doing.
