[OpenAFS] Filesystem incoherence

I am making use of OpenAFS (mostly 1.4.1, some 1.4.0) on a network of
Debian/Ubuntu Linux client machines, with a Debian Linux server.
I have encountered intermittent cases where a file written/modified on
another system is not visible/updated unless the (receiving) machine
flushes the affected volume.
I've been told that this situation seems to occur more frequently with
higher space utilization of the on-disk cache, but so far this is just a
hunch. (Generally, we are using large cache partitions, e.g. 16 or 24 GB)
How should I diagnose and address this problem?
