[Gluster-devel] Spurious Intermittent Error

I just saw this for the first time when creating a directory on a 
gluster root:

mkdir: cannot create directory `.boot': Device or resource busy

I have never seen that before, but I'm pretty sure it's wrong.

Cursory investigation reveals that the directory was in fact created. 
Removing it works fine, as does re-creating it, so the error seems very 

Unfortunately, again, no logs are available since it is a root file system.

This is with gluster 2.0.4 / fuse 2.7.4glfs11.
