[OpenAFS] Strange windows client error

We have gotten a really strange problem on a bunch of our WinXP 
computers, and I really
cannot find out what the problem is.

When an user logs in, after ~10 seconds after pressing enter in the 
login window, a popup
window says "Integrated login failed: Authentication Server was 
unavailable"  and nothing
related to AFS file system works (like Desktop redirection).  BUT:  only 
a few seconds later,
when the user is logged in, the identity manager has gotten tokens and 
AFS works.

Tested with the latest client and all hotfixes.  No firewalls involved.

Any hints?  The above error message is for me something that does not 
make sense.
