The sizes of the fragments tell me that this almost certainly is
another manifestation of the stub issue I reported. As I've noted,
however, my particular workaround won't work.

That said, I'm surprised the issue exists at all. In my case I thought
the issue existed because my Infrant NAS's firmware didn't properly
implement some aspect of the SMB/CIFS protocol. Are you using a
proprietary NAS, or a straight Linux box with straight SMB server
software running on it? If the latter, I wonder if there's indeed
still a bug in the mythbackend deletion code. Why don't you reopen my
SVN ticket with your details?
