[OpenAFS] Openafs 1.4.8 on OSX very slow

The next question then becomes how many files are in all of those
subdirectories? Finder is going to stat them all. Since the MacOS X
OpenAFS client does not have a working bulkstat mechanism, one
FetchStatus RPC will be issued per directory object. More if those
object are symlinks.
You can use tcpdump and wireshark to capture and examine the RPCs
that being sent from your machine. The more that are sent, the longer
it will take.
