...but not dynroot.
anyway, did this server perhaps have the afs client start before
root.afs was available?

it might panic. there's an unfortunate issue where the client will
probably now not shut down cleanly.
if it doesn't, do not restart the client or the host will crash.
i suggest either using dynroot or scripting to make sure the
fileserver is up before the client starts.
