The OpenAFS fileserver is just a standard user space program on Linux  
- it uses the underlying filesystem in exactly the same way as any  
other application would. If you're seeing filesystem bugs, then it's  
not a problem with OpenAFS, but an issue with the underlying filesystem.

Historically, reiserfs has had a number of stability and reliability  
issues - it's possible that you're just running into one of those.
