The opendir works fine. It returns a valid DIR pointer as you can see
in the line before the geterrno_from_win_error.
What happens looks like this:
In the first call to readdir, NtQueryDirectoryFile generates a Win32
error 2, "No such file" so readdir fakes a "." directory entry.
In the next call NtQueryDirectoryFile generates a Win32 error 18,
"No more files". readdir fakes a ".." entry.
In the next call NtQueryDirectoryFile generates another Win32 error
18 and readdir finally fails with errno 89, "No more files".
The first error, Win32 error 2 is very strange and I have no explanation
for this. Maybe it's not enough for OCFS to open the directory handle
with FILE_LIST_DIRECTORY access. It might help to use GENERIC_READ in
opendir instead. This should be tested by somebody with OCFS access.
