[OpenAFS] One odd offline volume, can't bring online

Another minor mystery:
I noticed we have one AFS volume which is offline. It's a RO
replica of a 974-meg RW volume where that RW volume is on
a different file server.
So I try to online it. No errors, but the volume is still offline.
I try to salvage it, and SalvageLog says "is a read-only volume;
not salvaged". Note that it's just offline, nothing told me that
it was offline-needing-salvage.
Since it's a RO-volume, I shrug and 'vos remove' the volume.
No problem, no errors in any log file. So I do a 'vos addsite'
and 'vos release' the volume. No errors anywhere, but when
I do 'vos examine' this new RO volume is once again offline.
What's happening there? The vice partition has plenty of
