I believe that one of my users has encountered this bug (unfortunately, we 
do not have a support contract), but it is happening very infrequently: I 
only know of two occurrences from one client machine in the past several 
months. Can you expand on what the symptoms of the bug are and how to 
confirm that we are suffering from it? Will all volumes be affected if 
accessed via a path that traverses a replicated root.cell?

Also, since it appears that we won't be able to get it fixed, what 
work-arounds are there (I can think of: don't use Windows, use a different 
file manager (but this won't help applications shat use the shell API), and 
always access volumes via the RW path/use replication sparingly.)?
