Hmm, strange :( I tried recompiling all of my userland stuff, as Bill
Studenmund has suggested (even completely rm -r'd my objdir), and I
still have the problem:

dahan /tmp# pwd
dahan /tmp# mkdir top bottom
dahan /tmp# mount -t union /tmp/top /tmp/bottom
dahan /tmp# cd bottom
dahan /tmp# mkdir bottom/dir
dahan /tmp# ls -l bottom
total 1
drwx------  4028275317 root  wheel  512 Nov  2 04:15 dir/
dahan /tmp# umount /tmp/bottom
dahan /tmp# ls -l top bottom

total 1
drwx------  2 root  wheel  512 Nov  2 04:15 dir/
