Two errors with Gnucash

A number of SX issues were fixed in 1.8.9, so upgrading may fix those
issues (or may not; it's unclear which bug(s) you're seeing).
As for disappearing files, it's probably an SMB race condition. Is
there any output on the terminal where you started gnucash from the
commandline? (Didn't start gnucash from a terminal? Well, try it, it
might tell you what's wrong).
Any reason you don't use NFS for your data files? It's not like you
could run GnuCash on windows.
