Is your file system mounted over the network? The symptoms you describe only make sense for a network mounted file system.

    Hi Mark,
    The code do a mounting before open the file handle and unmount after close it.
    However it was not across network, just mount/unmount on local disk partition.

      This could happen if one of the scripts was mounting the filesystem correctly and the other wasn't, you have one version of the file in the directory the filesystem gets mounted on, and one on the filesystem itself, so if the filesystem is mounted, you get that one, otherwise you get the one that is normally 'underneath' the mounted filesystem. Umount it and look in the place where it was mounted to see if the file the other script is getting is there...
