Maybe, oops. It didn't occur to me that that might happen, since the
server has root.afs.
The afs server is set to start before the client (S49openafs-server vs.
S50openafs-client). But maybe there was some kind of delay and root.afs
wasn't yet available when the afs client needed it. The last reboot was
soon after a power failure.

Thanks, I'll take care of it later, when I'm not tired.
