[Gluster-devel] Infrequent failure creating directory

Hello everybody!

I use glusterfs-1.3.9tla790 in unify mode. Sometimes "Midnight
commander" shows rather strange error while creating dir. It says that
"Directory already exists", and the glusterfs' client.log gives the
following warning line:
W [fuse-bridge.c:411:fuse_entry_cbk] glusterfs-fuse: 374649:
/nova/!WORK!/plate/flat/steady-alt/settings => 1011069 Rehashing
because st_nlink less than dentry maps

This error triggered not only when I create a directory manually, but
also when some dir-tree is copied. In the latter case the copy process
is stopped on such an error.

BTW, warnings "Rehashing because st_nlink less than dentry maps" is
rather common in my glusterfs logs. Especially for the ".Xauthority"
file. What do them mean?

With best regards,
