Hi all,
   I found yesterday that glusterfs and glusterfsd both don't read the
specfiles when they are in the present directory you need to specify it
through a path which will start from a '/'. like

glusterfsd -f glusterfs-sever.vol -L DEBUG -l /var/log/glusterfsd.log
now you do a cat on /var/log/glusterfsd.log i get

[ERROR] FATAL couldn't open the file 'glusterfs-server.vol'.

I am attaching a patch for this fix which was found that 'deamon' changes
the working directory of the present program and sets it to '/'. Coz when
i submitted the above command with NODAEMON option it used to work fine
for both when you deamonize no specfile is read.

I have tested this patch on Debain 4.0 - GCC 4.1 kernel 2.6.18-3-686 SMP.

Regards & Thanks
