I finally got the fix for the underlying problem committed
as a series of patches to /trunk (r1679920-r1679926).

The core idea is simple: in-txn directory representations
are append-only. Even entry deletions are realized by
appending the corresponding deletion record. Hence,
we only need to cache that filesize alongside the actual
contents. If the cached value matches the actual filesize,
the cache is up-to-date. Otherwise, some 3rd party wrote
to the txn (or we have some unknown bug).
