I'm glad to hear that; I've bumped the UDP timeout on a gateway box behind
which sit thirty-odd boxes who expect to be able to reach the ECE AFS
servers despite being otherwise isolated from the world. (AFS servers don't
like it when the apparent client cache manager port changes on them. Or,
rather, they don't take notice of it; they keep using the original port, for
which the masquerading has lapsed when using the default timeout.)
