Any known bugs in the parsing of CellServDB syntax for linked cells? I ask 
because I seem to be experiencing one and am trying to determine if it's a 
known problem or PEBKAC (problem existing between keyboard and chair).

I'm trying linked cells as per the docs I found at 
<http://docs.openafs.org/ReleaseNotesWindows/Linked_Cells.html>. Upon 
starting the client, I get the following messages.

Starting AFS services: openafs afsd.
Adding cell 'oldcell.unc.edu': error 2
Adding cell 'newcell.unc.edu': error 2
afsd: All AFS daemons started.

Client is "Linux tasty 3.2.0-51-generic #77-Ubuntu SMP Wed Jul 24 20:18:19 
UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux"

Openafs version is 1.6.1+ubuntu0.2 -- just 'cuz that's the newest in the 

Here's the syntax I've tried:
>newcell.unc.edu oldcell.unc.edu #New Cell                        #afsdb1.newcell.unc.edu                        #afsdb2.newcell.unc.edu                        #afsdb3.newcell.unc.edu
>oldcell.unc.edu newcell.unc.edu #Old Cell                        #db1.oldcell.unc.edu                        #db1.oldcell.unc.edu                        #db1.oldcell.unc.edu

Interestingly, I can configure linked cells correctly via "fs newcell 
-linkedcell". So, is this something obvious I'm doing wrong or should I 
open a bug report?
