      Description

      As figured out by Dave Dykstra, when a cvmfs clients updates an alien cache, other clients don't pick up the update. The core problem is that cvmfschecksum is not stored in the alien cache. Ensure that cvmfschecksum file is changed atomically (rename) since it is potentially written by multiple clients concurrently.
