Luca...thanks for the bug report and analysis. I've been able to
reproduce this too against 3.3.2. The attached patch reverts the open
with lookup intent functionality that was added at the beginning of the
2.6.30 cycle. This fixes the problem for me.

Steve and Shirish...given that we've already seen a couple of
regressions from these patches, I'd like to see them reverted until
they have been better tested.
