This PR is still open, and I can easily reproduce the problem in
NetBSD-current. Did anyone ever investigate this any further, or have
any clue as to what might be the problem?

To me this bug is very annoying since it makes CFS totally unusable
(cryptographic file system running entirely in userland).
