OK I did some more investigating and it turns out the files *are* actually
removed, but they appear not to be for a while. You can stat them and they
appear to be there but when you try to open them it fails.

I traced it down to stat cashing in the client but could not figure out
where the timeout value is set / a config setting to tweak this. Is there 
such an option?
