      Description

      Paths returned from DFS internally cache their FileStatus, so that getStatus(Path) does not require another RPC. This cache is never refreshed and become stale, resulting in program error.

      This should not be fixed until FileSystem#listStatus() is removed by HADOOP-2563, and user code is thus no longer dependent on this cache for good performance.
