I can confirm this.  Upgrading from 2.2.7a to 2.2.8 breaks Dfs.  I've
upgraded and reverted several times and it's certain.  I've been looking
at logs, source and diffs between 2.2.7a and 2.2.8 all day.  I don't
know what changed between the two versions to break it.  I'm continuing
to look.  

Is msdfs actually working for anybody in 2.2.8?  Has those of you who
have had trouble found any additional clues?
