What parameters do you start the fileserver with? Currently I favour:

bnode fs fs 1
parm /usr/openafs/libexec/openafs/fileserver -nojumbo -p 23 -busyat 600 -rxpck 400 -s 1200 -l 1200 -cb 100000 -b 240 -vc 1200
parm /usr/openafs/libexec/openafs/volserver
parm /usr/openafs/libexec/openafs/salvager -datelogs -parallel all

Hm. What is not freed correctly?

The "CallPreamble: Couldn't get CPS. Too many lockers" indicates that
the fileserver can not send any rx calls any more. The question now is
how it got into that state and why restarting (other than reboot) does
not clear it.
