Here's another question to those who can reproduce the problem.

What I need is an strace from one netapp and and one nwfs filesystem
when trying to create a file with trailing dots and spaces:
for the following scenarios:

  $ strace -o lame_fs.trace touch 'foo.' 'foo '

This will help to create a workaround for those filesystems.

I only need straces for the *not* working cases.
