Subject RE: Problem with zip task
Date Tue, 28 Jul 2009 17:58:17 GMT
The mounts are persistent, and we are not doing anything like that as
part of the build.

I did find some information on the  .nfs files:

.nfs files are created by a clienthost when one process on the 
clienthost deletes a file while another process on the clienthost is 
still holding the file open. This allows the delete to appear to 
succeed for one process w/o causing the the process to begin getting 
stale nfs file handles. It is a hack, but it is the only way to 
simulate UFS semantics on NFS. The clienthost will normally delete the 
.nfs file once the remaining process holding the file open closes 
it. However, if the clienthost crashes, you get left with a .nfs file 
on the filer. 

Note that if more than one host is involved (e.g, process on host a is 
holding a file open over NFS, while process on host b deletes that 
over NFS), process a will get a stale file handle.

Could something like this be happening as part of a simple zip task?
