Comment (by Jeff Epler <jepler@…>):

 This bug may be easier to hit than I first supposed. We have now received
 some information that this may be exacerbated by the "SMB2 Client
 Redirector cache" (Windows, Vista and later), which by default will cache
 positive existence of a file for 10 seconds, making a nice big window for
 trouble as long as two machines sharing the same Windows share are
 involved. A similar design choice on Unix with NFS (attribute caching)
 probably creates nice big windows there too.
