Error message: LS: reading directory <path>: Invalid argument

What does this error mean?

[user@hostname Desktop]$ ls /net/bld-svr/data/APPS_vms/VMs
ls: reading directory /net/bld-svr/data/APPS_vms/VMs: Invalid argument
One of my users says he's getting this error and its listing all the files twice when he runs "ls" on a certain directory.
Any ideas?

edit: Forgot to mention that this has been setup as NFS because we have Windows users that need access to this fileserver also.

We have determined that this is only happening on 64bit versions of RHEL 6.x. Our RHEL 6.x 32bit versions do not display this error.
