[OpenAFS] problems with file links under Windows XP

Hello all,

we get some serious problems with file links in our environment.

We are using OpenAFS for Windows version 1.5.30 and Linux AFS-Servers=20

When we create a file link under Linux with a pattern like=20
"PATH/../../PATH" and the path is longer than 100 characters, we get an=20
error on Windows "Permission denied". In a 64bit environment the=20
AFS-Client crashes with a message "OpenAFS Stopping due to error=20
(cm_scache.c:1783): cm_scache_t refCount 0." in the EventLog.

I did some tests with older versions. The result is, that the latest=20
version without the error is 1.5.21. I think, there is a problem in the=20
recursion detection feature in version 1.5.22, which was partly fixed in=20
1.5.23 and 1.5.24.

Does the path have a pattern like "PATH/../PATH" there are no problems.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
