Personally, I do not think that this is a valid/helpful response. If
there is no list of fixes, then this should be fixed.

As I said before, it works fine in FC and I only experience this issue
in RHEL 5.2. This is why I am asking for someone using exactly RHEL 5.2
and glusterfs. Something close enough is not enough. FC is close enough
as well and it works.

I agree.
