[Linux-cluster] gfs/nfs trouble

Hi all,

I have trouble exporting a GFS over NFS. Here the situation:

I have 2 PE1950 with a MD3000 SAN attached to build a failover  
cluster. Both machines run
kernel and cluster-2.03.10. I configured several GFS on the  
storage device that I would
like to export via NFS to a rather old PE2800 which runs kernel  
2.4.26 (I have to stick to this
kernel on this machine since it runs openmosix).

When I copy on the PE2800 a small file (1858 Bytes) everything works  
fine. When I try to copy
a slightly larger file (e.g. 17318 Bytes) I get the error

cp: closing `test2.png': Invalid argument

and I have an empty file 'test2.png' on the disk ...

I've seen a similar bug on bugzilla (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/ 
yet this should be fixed in my configuration ...

Can somebody help?
