You are right, that's another bug. It's not mission critical since we
are running in a more or less single user environment, but definitely
wrong behaviour of unionfs.  I'm not sure if they fixed that in the new
release. I'm still waiting for something really STABLE to come up, for
the public 4.0.2 release. :-/
