Default read errors mapping "/profiles/ChangeLog" (in gentoo-portage)

Hi,

I did a sync earlier and noticed this little message scroll by:

WARNING: profiles/ChangeLog failed verification -- update discarded
(will try again).
rsync: read errors mapping "/profiles/ChangeLog" (in gentoo-portage):
Stale NFS file handle (116)

Anybody else get that? Portage seems to work fine, downloading java
right now and OOo for the rest of the week. Just curious if someone
should know about this or not.

Dale

Check bugzilla. If there is something wrong with the tree, it's likely already
reported and fixed. You probably synced while an update to that part of the
tree was going on - happens to me about once a year (i.e. not very often)

The error itself is harmless, it's just a ChangeLog file. So by rights therest
of portage and the tree should continue to work just fine.

Sort of what I thought. Everything is working just fine but if I see it
again, same file, then I'll check into it more closely.

I guess with a tree as big as Gentoo has, someone is messing with one or
more files about all the time. Bound to catch one on occasion I guess.
