Alright, so I took a closer look at this.  Couple of things.

- When I did it the first time, I got some test failures because I was
  using the "short" (/afs/cell) pathname but the test output returned
  stuff based on the output of pwd, which returned /afs/cell.domain.name/...
  Once I changed to the fully-qualified name, I passed all tests but one.
  So I don't know why the slocal test failed for you, but since you're using
  the dot path it may be related to that.

- The refile test is failing because AFS does not support cross-directory
  hard links.  There is a thing in the test suite that checks for
  that, but it only checks for same-directory hard links (which works
  fine on AFS).  So that's a bug in the test suite I can fix.  You can
  ignore that for now.
