I have a mysterious directory that doesn't list until I cd into it. Then it does just fine. Then it vanishes again periodically.
bash-3.00$ pwd /sde bash-3.00$ ls -la total 16 drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 0 May 18 16:46 . drwxr-xr-x 29 root root 4096 Mar 23 13:16 .. drwxrwxrwx 11 root root 4096 Dec 8 16:36 src_rep drwxr-xrwx 7 root root 4096 Dec 3 11:06 taaats_6 bash-3.00$ cd s_int_r bash-3.00$ pwd /sde/s_int_r bash-3.00$ ls .. s_int_r src_rep taaats_6 bash-3.00$ cd .. bash-3.00$ ls s_int_r src_rep taaats_6
Some time passes, with no commands entered...
bash-3.00$ pwd /sde bash-3.00$ ls src_rep taaats_6 bash-3.00$ ls ./s_int_r/.. s_int_r src_rep taaats_6
I am SSH'd into this machine with putty. If I open up another connection to the machine, the second connection seems to always be the same as the first. Ie- It initially doesn't show on either, but if I cd into it on one connection, it will then show on the second.
What is going on?
