Hi Shehjar!

Unfortunately, I can't test new versions for now. There are critical
CFD tasks for our cluster. Yesterday I've switched to 'release-2.0'
git branch and everything is OK so far. Thanks!  But I can't break
/home file system again or users will kill me. :) Hope there will be a
possibility to test new GlusterFS versions couple of weeks later.

Best regards,
