[PVFS2-developers] current cvs weirdness

Is anyone besides me seeing anything strange with the current cvs
snapshot? This fails for me on a single server/client setup:
./pvfs2-cp /etc/hosts /mnt/pvfs2/foo
The error msg printing is broken in the case that I am hitting, so the
output isn't very helpful. However, looking in gdb I see that bmi has
been asked to send 16 buffers in a list operation generated by a flow,
and the writev call gets a EINVAL. I'm pretty sure that copying this
small file should only require one buffer.
Oddly enough, everything looks fine when I run pvfs2-cp through
valgrind, and I get no error. So.. maybe this is some subtle timing or
memory thing that doesn't show up all the time. It hits me every time
right now though :)
I don't know where this problem came from yet. Just randomly backing up
a bit it looks like cvs from 6 weeks ago is fine, but maybe cvs from 3
weeks ago is not?
I'll continue digging (or maybe just narrow down the working cvs
versions until I find the suspect commit), but I just thought I would
hit the list in case anyone has ideas...
