I'm fairly certain I know what the cause of this one is: Invalidation upon
server change isn't handled correctly. NFS tries to invalidate a file by
discarding that file's attachment to the cache - without first clearing up the
operations it has outstanding on the cache for that file.

I'm working on adding formal invalidation at the moment.

The attached patch may get you more precise information. The first hunk is the
main catcher.
