User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; T312461)

Description of problem:
ls -l against nfs mounted cdrom image (/mnt/foo/testdir) eventually fails 
with 'ls: .: No such file or directory'. A cd /mnt/foo/testdir is required to 
re-establish the current directory.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.on anyhost:
mount -t iso9660 -o loop image.iso9660 /mnt/cdrom.image
image.iso9660 is ~264 MB.

2.on client:
mount -t nfs anyhost:/mnt/cdrom.image /mnt/foo
/mnt/foo/testdir has ~50 RPM files.

3.test script:

cd /mnt/foo/testdir
while [ 1 ]
  ls -l


Actual Results:  after 8 minutes or less, the test case returns the below 

ls: .: No such file or directory
ls: .: No such file or directory
ls: .: No such file or directory
ls: .: No such file or directory

Expected Results:  Normal ls -l output showing 50 RPM files

Additional info:

 Speed:  801.839 MHz
 Cache:  256 KB
 Memory: 128 MB
