It was "No such file or directory". I was strace'ing the behavior
while it was happening, and I was getting the expected answers,
just very delayed. For example:
# strace -p <http pid>
open("/afs/.htaccess", O_RDONLY|O_LARGEFILE) = <long pause> -1 ENOENT ...
# strace ls /afs
getdents64(3, /* 20 entries */, 4096) = <long pause> 640
