I am thinking it is a recent change in samba or hal.  

stat /mnt/H
returns permission denied.

Here is a follow up.

sudo umount /mnt/H
no errors
sudo mount /mnt/H
no errors
ls -l /mnt/
now /mnt/CompMDB has the errors.
sudo umount /mnt/CompMDB
sudo mount /mnt/CompMDB
ls -l /mnt/
now the problems are back on /mnt/H
