Strange AUFS problem with squeeze...

Hi Dirk,

Even though that's quite a while ago there hasn't been any activity on this one.

Does it help if you add a `sleep 1` command somewhere in between, i.e., is it
some timing/concurrency issue? Does this also happen if you manually create a
file and try to access it immediately afterwards?

It might be worthwhile posting the stack trace for others to investigate.

But other than that, sorry, no idea (and searching on the web didn't turn up
anything useful either). Just make sure your RAM is ok, maybe run memtest to
rule out hardware issues.
