Well, well - after reading Chris' posting below, I just tried to map a drive to my AFS space and viola! it worked again (for the first time in ~2 weeks)! Hmmmmm. Just a coincidence, or the result of the good Mr. Wolf's efforts at following up on this problem? You decide...
I'm believing the latter. I'd already installed and configured the AFS client, per John Valenti's excellent efforts, and was prepared to kiss MS drive mapping bye-bye. May still do so. Contest is between MS's seamless and easy-to-use mapping interface and the AFS's client clearly superior authentication and security. In these days of increasingly crazy life on the 'net, I may well opt for the more robust security solution.
Thanks to all who contributed on this issue. Once again proves the high value of lists like this.

I stepped through this on the phone yesterday with Steve Devine so he could
fully understand the way it was (mis)behaving, and he said he would follow
up. Today it's working again for us, so I assume he found the problem and
fixed it. My faculty are very appreciative.
