Description of problem: "ls -la" on NFS filesystem first produces Input/output 
errors then followed by the correct results

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

How reproducible: probably easy to reproduce

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Mount NFS filesystem 
2. Cd to the mounted filesystem
3. Perform an "ls -la" in some directories
Actual results: ls -la returns "ls: file/dir Input/output error" for each 
file/dir, followed by the correct expected results of an ls command. Sample 

[root@perseus1 kleung]# ls -la
ls: .: Input/output error
ls: ..: Input/output error
ls: .gtkrc: Input/output error
ls: Oracle: Input/output error
(and so on)
total 640
drwxr-xr-x   39 kleung   users        2048 Sep  3 12:31 .
drwxr-xr-x   45 root     root         1536 Aug 14 15:32 ..
-rw-r--r--    1 kleung   users         120 Sep  3 12:29 .gtkrc
drwxr-xr-x    4 kleung   users        1536 Aug 28 10:22 Oracle
(and so on)
[root@perseus1 kleung]# 

Expected results: ls -la should provide a listing of all the files/dirs in a 

Additional info: ls -la can obviously see and list the files in the directory 
since the correct results are returned following those "Input/output error" 
messages. RedHat ES 2.1 prints results of an "ls -la" on the same directory 
without the errors, and so do RedHat 7.2, 7.3, 8.0, and 9.

A simple "ls" or "ls -a" does not generate the Input/output errors, only when 
you use the "-l" option.

Which current release fixes it? I am running the newest beta version of ES3. We 
want to migrate all of our servers to enterprise, but need GCC 3.2 which is why 
ES 2.1 isn't right for us.
