Ubuntu 7.10 amd64 uses gcc-4.1 and the volume or at least the damaged
files where not accessible from anywhere else.

I now disabled ecryptfs for /vicepa and it seems to work. However I
couldn't reproduce it yet but the volumes where inaccessible very fast

Btw, has somebody got a clue, what could be damaged by ecryptfs so that

VAttachVolume: Error reading largeVnode vol header


In my opinion too, it isn't a salvager problem, because some files where
not readable after copying into /afs. This files themself still exist in
/vicepa/AFSIDat/* and could be restored from there.

Whats going wrong?
