Could you clarify how you've done the mountpoint creation?  AFS allows
you to have multiple mountpoints of the same volumes, but doing that
is not typical.

For example, if I have the volumes user.steven and user.lari, I could
mount them at

/afs/mycell/user/steven (for user.steven) and
/afs/mycell/user/lari (for user.lari)

Those mountpoints would be created like:

fs mkmount -directory /afs/mycell/user/steven -vol user.steven
fs mkmount -directory /afs/mycell/user/lari -vol user.lari
