Dear Mr. Kip,

I've ever experienced similar trouble.
In my case, I downloaded GRUB (the greatest GNU boot loader)
source tree via CVS onto XFS partition.
Just after finishing checkout, the result of "ls -l" told as
if grub were a FILE, not a directory. After a minute, it became
a directory, but executing find told several inconsistency error
(similar to that you reported).
However, at present I could not repeat the trouble (still
I'm using same kernel), so still I wonder what caused the trouble.
486 (100MHz) is too slow to operate XFS? 64MB memory is too small?
The load average was too heavy? Yet I don't know....
If you could repeat the trouble, please let me know the specs
of your testing environment, and how to repeat the trouble -
