I couldn't reproduce the problem now... it looks like the bug only
happens with a Windows (2000) SMB server because I tried to reproduce
the problem with Samba as server and I couldn't manage it (I can't
remember the name of the problematic file but I was able to md5sum all
files below my directory which contained the problematic file).

Okay, then maybe a release note telling this would be welcome.
