Yes, it is. That's now RAL, PIC and GridKa all having data access problems for LHCb. For IN2P3, they have just moved to using xroot to access files on the dCache rather than dcap. This is so far proving more successful in that jobs are successfully processing many files. With dcap LHCb are constantly seeing the standard:

Failed to create a control line
Failed open file in the dCache.

error message.
