Revert back to AFS 3.4a/Patch 3 (or 5).  Patch 9 might also work, I have
not yet tried it, but none of the patches above five work.  This has
been so at least for us on NT 4.0 SP3.

BTW, at least patch 3 will fill your event log in approximately three
minutes when you build on AFS (i.e. if run make with lots of files).  It
will create a event notification some five times a second.  And it will
be *really* slow, something like a factor of 20 slower than on local
disk.  I don't know if these two things are related.

Hope this helps,
With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.  However, this is not
necessarily a good idea.  It is hard to be sure where they are going
to land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly
overhead.  --RFC1925, "The Twelve Networking Truths"
