I have not followed this thread very closely, and since I'm not an OSX
user, I am not familiar with the particular FS type that has this
problem.  Is this an old FS?
Is hacking Lucene to work around this 'bug' in a particular old(?) FS
the right thing to do, or would it be better to draw the line here and
say: get a better FS?
I'm not sure, I don't know anything about that FS, etc., but I'm
wondering what others think.
