For some reason your FreeBSD doesn't support what Linux calls "silly
rename files", i.e. those .nfsXXXXX files that get created when a file
is unlink()ed but it's still referenced to in memory. I thought FreeBSD
supported them.. But I remember hearing someone else having the same
problem. Kind of an annoying problem with no good solutions..
