Following my fading memory here, but....

What file system are you sharing? VFAT by chance? For some reason
this sounds vaguely like a truncate bug Tridge fixed a few monthds
back. Try 2.2.2 (released over the weekend).

If you are exporting a VFAT fs, try to reproduce the same behavior
using ext2.
