[OpenAFS] File contents change when copying into AFS with rsync

I've just begun teaching myself about OpenAFS, having installed it
(126.96.36.199+dfsg-2, Ubuntu Maverick i386) finally after procrastinating
for a number of years.
The two times I've bulk-loaded data into my new AFS cell with rsync,
I've been paranoid enough to generate checksums of the files on both
sides. In both several-gigabyte batches there was exactly one file
with exactly one four-byte difference. What I'd like hopefully are
some ideas for narrowing down if this is an rsync thing, an OpenAFS
thing, or something else (cheap memory, gremlins, etc.).
Currently my strategy is to try different methods of copying over the
next several days (as it will take days) until a clear culprit becomes
evident. Has anybody experienced anything like this before?
Make things. Make sense.
