    Sorry for the silence, this is a nice bug you've found :)

    I can reproduce this at least, with this script:

    #!/bin/bash

    umount /mnt/test2
    mount /dev/sdb4 /mnt/test2
    rm -f /mnt/test2/*
    dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/test2/bigfile bs=1M count=512
    touch
    /mnt/test2/thisisveryveryveryveryveryveryveryveryveryveryveryveryveryveryveryverylongfilename
    ln -s
    /mnt/test2/thisisveryveryveryveryveryveryveryveryveryveryveryveryveryveryveryverylongfilename
    /mnt/test2/link
    umount /mnt/test2
    mount /dev/sdb4 /mnt/test2
    ls /mnt/test2/
    umount /mnt/test2

    I'll look into it ...

    -Eric
