[OpenAFS] vos commands hang while vos backup in progress

Hello --

 We've just installed a Solaris 10 ( Generic_118833-24 ) fileserver, running
 the OpenAFS 1.4.2 binaries from www.openafs.org.

 When a "vos backup <volume>" is in process on any volume on the fileserver, 
 any other vos command against that fileserver (e.g., vos listpart fileserver) 
 hangs until the vos backup completes, at which point any other hung vos 
 commands immediately complete.

 The "vos backup" command is always accompanied by an error like this
 in Volserlog :

  Wed Feb 28 14:57:56 2007 VAttachVolume: Failed to open \
   /vicepb/V0537238231.vol (errno 2)

  ( AFS errno=2 is "A file or directory in the path name does not exist. )

 Anyone have an idea of what is happening here ?

Thanks for any help.
