> Definitely not a feature IMHO. To help us think more about it:

First setup:
Opensuse 10.3 standalone server/client machine (tests run on the server)
kernel-default- (i686)
Cache: shared ext3 partition (/)
Repeatable: yes, in every run of blogbench
Memcache: problem still present

Second setup:
Server: Redhat Enterprise Linux 5, 2.6.18-92.1.18.el5 x86_64
rpms from openafs download repository
Clients: Opensuse 10.3, kernel versions and (i686 and x86_64), same openafs rpms as above,
using memcache
Problem is repeatable.

I'm willing to experiment some more (when time permits).
