As I recall, one of the changes was to use a different file_id than
the normal one Samba uses, based on a hash of the path (more details
elided). Is it possible that in this case the code has aliased two
files together, because my memory of dealing with this bug says that
it was always related to files being aliased. In the ADS case, streams
were being aliased to their parent file and causing the problem.
