Owncloud 4.5 beta 3 on Ubuntu 12.04 - php 5.3.10.

It's not a huge amount of files, less than 1000 comprising maybe 4GBs. 
It only seems to happen when uploading the synced files, once everything 
is uploaded it seems to operate normally.

Sync client is the latest from the repo on ubuntu 12.04 as well.
