I'm really not sure.  The test machine is Fedora Core 3, i386.

Given I have a 'good' and 'bad' version, the only idea I have so far is
to try the slow and painful binary search.  

What I do notice is that the queryfsinfo call is the last thing before
the 'close sequence'.  I'm also running the fake_perms VFS module, but
that should just change file owners.  (I'll try to remember to try with
'profile acls' instead tomorrow).
