I have not been able to reproduce this, though it sounds like a file system
related race condition is triggering the re-load. Can you give me some
details like OS, filesystem, local or remote, media type, data accumulation
rate (fields/row and rows/s), file format, etc.

I also can't reproduce this. Can you give me details (OS, file size)? Is the
data being updated real time during the read? At what rate?

Yes.... are you using smb or nfs? Is it at all correlated with the first bug?
