This would happen under unify only if the namespace entry is missing for the
file. Self heal of unify should ideally fix these cases. If for some reason
(bug?) the self-heal is not fixing it, you could try manually 'touch' ing
the file in the backend of namespace and see if you can access the file.

inode generation number would generally not make a file disappear.
