The '<' isn't a problem: it's an SMB wildcard (equivalent to '*').

Looking at the mixed and upper case names being used by MATLAB,
I suspect this is probably:

6939430 queryfileinfo should only use vnodetopath for directory nodes

If that's the case, the problem is actually due to negative entries
being cached in the Solaris DNLC - because it's not case insensitive.
We added a workaround in snv_138, which I don't think is available
as a binary update.

If you provide the full *binary* snoop output, it'd be more useful.

I know very little about MATLAB, so I can’t tell what it’s trying to do.

If I access the images first, by running Windows explorer in the

Could the “<” be causing a problem?

Needless to say, it works fine if the files are on a local filesystem or
Samba share.

I’m a bit baffled with this one.
