I hope this is not the wrong list to ask. Didn't get any answers on
When you try to do the following inside a nullfs mounted directory,
where the nullfs origin is itself mounted via nfs you get an error:
# tail -f foo&
# rm -f foo
tail: foo: Stale NFS file handle
This is really a problem when running services inside jails and using
NFS as storage. As of  it looks like this problem is known for a
while. On a normal NFS mount this does not happen as "silly renaming"
 works there (producing nasty little .nfsXXXX files).
