      Description

      If one attempts to access a file through a cvmfs client before its update is available, then access it again after the TTL has expired but before the default kernel cache timeout, then an ls shows the file but with unknown stat information.  For example, ls output on the directory containing it looks like this:

      ls: cannot access /mnt/cvmfs/newfile: No such file or directory
      -?????????? ? ?   ?       ?            ? newfile
      

      This was noticed on a cvmfs-2.6.0 client on an SL7 system.
