Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: linux-image-generic

System: ubuntu hardy kernel version 2.6.24.10.8
Steps to reproduce:

mount an NFS share, and use Unionfs to mount an tmpfs over it.

Symptoms: New files can be created as expected, however editing existing
files fails with "No permission to write to $file".

This avoids using installation methods like fai, that use this technique
during install time. E.g. it fails to setup /etc/resolv.conf or
/etc/apt/sources.list.
