[OpenAFS] Need help: Tokens stop working

I'm trying to diagnose a problem that's been plaguing some of our users here.
The behavior: AFS access stops working, well in advance of the Kerberos
authentication expiring. Sometimes, only certain files become inaccessible;
other times, it's as though "unlog" had been run. However, tokens(1)
consistently shows that the user still has a token, valid or otherwise.
Often, running "unlog; aklog" corrects the hiccup. Sometimes, this has to be
run two or three times in a row to have the desired effect.
I'd like to ask if anyone has an idea what might be causing this, and
otherwise, what tools/commands I could use to see what's going on with the
token. (Obviously, "aklog -d" isn't of much help here.)
The server is 1.4.7 on Debian Lenny; clients are 1.4.9 on Ubuntu Jaunty.
