My users on Win 7 32bit were not admin and could get tokens/tickets/data=20
from OpenAFS cells with previous 1.5.x and 1.6.x versions of OpenAFS.

The IFS client does get rid of smb protocol and shows some other nice=20
side effects.
My experiences here were great over the last 2 weeks, just a few small=20
problems still appear: running software installations out of OpenAFS is=20
often not possible with IFS (if it needs a change in user authorization).
