This topic was on the agenda for our release-team meeting yesterday.
If I remmber correctly, multiple developers have gotten fairly
reliable ways to reproduce the issue locally.
It also seems that as a workaround, reverting
https://gerrit.openafs.org/#/c/12451/ is likely to reduce the
likelihood of triggering events.

Given the assumption that developers are reproducing the same
situation that you are, hopefully there is not a need for additional
information from the production sites.
