Sorry, I don't know perl enough to actually see the sequence
of events exactly enough. Can you explain for really stupid
people what this does and where the problem is? It might
help if you could send us an strace of that script producing
the error together with a network trace.

Also, I am a little confused about the scenario: You are
saying that you saw this on a Windows host that has mounted
a CentOs share? This means that the cifs kernel module is
not involved at all here?

With best regards,
