Thanks for the reply. We have had this happen on multiple systems that are
connected to different san disks. The directories that seem to have the
problem are directories that have over a couple hundred files. Here is an
example of some of the file names in the directory:
 B07-138 IgG 40X BP.jpg
 B07-138 IgG 40X BP.jpg_meta.xml
 B07-145 C3 20X BP.jpg
 B07-145 C3 20X BP.jpg_meta.xml

The problem seems to happen with file names that are longer like those
listed above.
