This is an OpenPGP/MIME signed message (RFC 2440 and 3156)
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable

Please do not send xls documents to this list.  There is nothing to be
gained from them.  1.5.75 and 1.5.78 releases do not include the
redirector so that isolates the problem to being in the afsd_service.exe
cache manager.

File a bug report to openafs-bugs@openafs.org.  The next time you notice
the problem do two things:

1. "fs memdump" and send the resulting %windir%\temp\afsd_alloc.log file
as an update to your bug report

2. "fs getfid <xls-file>" and report that File ID along with the
afsd_alloc.log file.
