Probably.  It makes sense to me, although I would like to where the system
becomes busy.  Can someone of you who see the bug try the following:

Reproduce the bug in a neighborhurd.  Find out where the fs finds it is
busy.  Then find where the fs makes itself busy (sets a bit, or adds some
element to a list).  Set a break point there and see what happened :)

Thanks, more testing is better.  As this problem didn't occur before, we
should add a note about the work around to the UPDATE doc, change the
install manual, and upload the packages.
