I'll investigate what the issue is.

The bug is there to fix the non-compliance to the expected behaviour 
documented above under certain conditions. The explained behaviour 
itself is not a bug. I referred you to that bug because it is related to 
the ESTALE issue. If the ESTALE problem exists even with the patches 
provided as part of 3041, we need to root cause it.
