It occurs to me that my previous message still did not mention what
version we're running.  Our file servers are all at:
    AFS version:  OpenAFS 1.4.6

It's somewhat pathetic that we're so far behind, but we've had some
serious sysadmin cutbacks over the last five years, and don't have
enough people to get the work done which needs to be done.  If
it's any consolation, AFS is not the only service where our computer
support is far behind where us sysadmins want to be.
