[Gluster-devel] io recovering after failure

Is this true for files that are currently open? For example I have a 
virtual machine running that had a file open at all times. Errors are 
bubbling back to the application layer instead of just waiting. After 
that I have to unmount/remount the gluster vol. Is there a way of 
preventing this?

(This is the latest tla btw)
