I notice afs performance on osx Leopard is very slow; opening a folder  
in Finder takes up to 2 minutes to even display. I have the right  
tokens, firewall is open for all connections.
Performance in terminal is much better, a cd and ls to /afs works  
instantly. So it seems there are problems in the finder.
I noticed two afsd processes running. normal ?

Im also tried running parallels with the windows client on the same  
machine, works perfect and very fast.

Does anyone have some tips to speed up performance ? Are there any  
known problems in the mac osx finder in the latest leopard?
I'm running 1.4.8 with openafsconfig, MIT kerberos extras. Tokens look  
fine. Mac OSX 10.5.6
