The M is (and always was) there in the old IBM AFS server's NetRestrict
file only.

But but but.  I may have found another NetRestrict related issue that
just might have something to do with the whole mess.

Let's go back a few weeks.  I set the new server up on a different IP
address to begin with (as it was a "development" server that I was
deploying alongside the sun4x_58, which was still in
production at that time).  At that time, I only made it a fileserver
and gradually moved all the files from the old sun4x_58
onto it.  After the other sun4x_58 box developed a hardware problem,
I figured I'd just throw all other servers on in the the sunx86_510
"development" box, change the IP address, vos changeaddr, done.

I've only just now spotted it that I had a NetRestrict on the new server
that had the "old" development IP address.  So it has had a NetRestrict
that enabled two specific IP addresses, neither of which was the address
it is supposed to have,

It does not seem to have been such a problem because files (and to
some extent, other data...) have been served from the new server all
this time, but it's certainly not a good thing to have there.

Changed, bos restart localhost -all, let's see if it changes anything.
If this was it, I'm really sorry to have wasted everybody's time with it.
