[OpenAFS] AFS 'fs checkv' and client daemon, volume renames not seen by clients

I thought that the AFS client was supposed to do the equivalent of an 
'fs checkv' on a timed thread, every hour.

Older AFS clients (OAFS 1.2.x, IBM/Transarc 3.6 xyz) don't appear to do 

Does anyone know if the OAFS 1.4.4 clients are reliably checking volume 
ID mapping every hour (or just reliably checking at some interval?)

I've recently seen clients not notice a change in volumeID:name mapping 
for more than two days, and an 'fs checkv' corrected the problem instantly.
