I have a serious problem with AFS. I am using Debian sarge Linux 2.6.15 
with openafs 1.4.1 with openafs-client from backport. We have a cluster 
of ~20 computers and three fileservers. All clients have identical 
installation (only hardware differs from group to group).

The problem is that on one computer a two (so far) files that look on 
that computer different than on other identical computers.
The first file was only named wrong, one letter was capital instead of 
non-capital. The second file was the same inconsistency, but this time 
it was a character in the file.

I can copy e.g. from my machine this file in my local home directory and 
then via ssh to the "faulty" computer I can copy the same file again to 
my local home. "diff" tells me they are different and a hex output 
revealed that there is on difference.

I am really worried, beacuse I cannot trust that machine anymore!?

Can anyone comment?
