Sure - but I see this as the same case as "the file got renamed".
If you have a LRU list in your app, and a file gets renamed, then
the LRU list breaks (unless you also store the inode number in the
LRU list, and lookup the file by inode number - or object UUID
on NTFS, possibly using distributed link tracking).
