Thanks for the report.  The patch below should fix it.

Thanks,

Subject: fuse: fix READDIRPLUS skipping an entry

A user running a Haskell program noticed a problem with fuse's readdirplus:
when it is interrupted by a signal, it skips one directory entry.

The reason is that fuse erronously updates ctx->pos after a failed
dir_emit().

The issue originates from the patch adding readdirplus support.
