Just a guess, the last operation on that file was a reintegration?

I've noticed some 'VVs are different' messages from GetAttr/Fetch type
operations that seem to correspond to recent reintegrations. There is
probable something in the client that is not correctly updating the
local version vector, which results in a forced refetch of a file that
we were the last writer for.

At the moment this is nothing more than a theory though.
