I suspect the problem is not related to deleting open files -- that's a
case which we should handle just fine.
I suspect a locking issue, which leads to this node being absent from
the node lists even though it's not marked obsolete. Do you have an
image of the flash when this has happened? I'd like to see the _full_
set of nodes for this file.
If you can reproduce, then logs of CONFIG_JFFS2_FS_DEBUG=1 while you do
so would be enlightening -- we need to see what's happening to that node
at 0x00540000 when it was dropped from the lists.
