Ah I see! I have an additional comment/question though.

I've noticed that when I unmount a gluster volume on a client the 
[glusterfs] process is still running.  Perhaps it thinks my cleint spec 
is a server.
I have no instance of "type protocol/server" in the client spec. What 
does it use to determine weather it's a client or a server?
