When layering a store over a file that doesn't exist `storeio' lookup of the store will return ENOENT, causing clients to use underlying translator instead.

$ ls -a

$ settrans -ac foo -T file bar
$ echo test > foo
$ settrans -g foo
$ cat foo

The solution is to return another error instead. I'm not sure which one is appropriate, but I have attached a patch that returns
