[OpenAFS] Communication errors on volume operations

Hi all,

I've compiled OpenAFS 1.5.55 to debs to check out the read/write
disconnected operation stuff, and I'm getting errors on various volume

For example:
bryn@ubuntu-dfs:~$ vos create ubuntu-dfs.hostname.com /vicepa root.cell
-cell hostname.com

Failed to end the transaction on the volume root.cell 536870918
Possible communication failure
Error in vos create command.
Possible communication failure

The new volume needs to be salvaged before anything can be done with it.
I get a similar error on releasing a volume. 

What could possibly be causing this problem? Is it merely a known,
in-development bug?
