What is your problem?
(Sorry, but "the problem" doesn't mean anything to anyone but yourself :)

Please give the command you use, error messages you see, log messages in
the kernel logfiles (and/or relevant dmesg output).

Kernel version? (2.2.18 recommended)

For a file named X does this always happen or only sometimes? If you
change the name (on the server) to something else (shorter or longer) does
the problem disappear?
