Cfs fr is something related to writeback caching that was never properly
finished. It pretty much always returns that error.

It is in fact a local/global conflict. Most likely due to a remove
operation. I guess the directory in which the conflict should appear was
also removed, so we can't show the conflict in the location it really
is. Normally the fact that there is a conflict is propagated to the
parent directory until we reach a directory that hasn't been removed
yet. However whenever there is a shell or process with that directory as
it's current working directory we cannot turn it into a symlink.
