There are two problems:
1) The client keeps on retrying - not much can be done about that.
2) The same FH gets allocated to a different file (maybe even in a
different FS) after a server reboot. 
 I've seen the effects of this with other an exported layered FS
on a different OS. Having data written to the wrong files was horrid!
