Unfortunately, dmesg was not salvagable, and /var/log/message contains 
no useful information :
[root at s01 log]# egrep -i "(gluster|glfs)" /var/log/messages | wc
       0       0       0

Furthermore, the glusterfsd log file contained nothing interesting 
either.  As for the core, where do you suppose it got dumped ?  I don't 
see anything obvious on the server. :(

It may be worth noting that after rebooting all the nodes and starting 
Gluster back up again, i ran the tests specified in the previous email 
all night without any problems.  It's possible that the problem was.. 
something else, though i can't imagine what, since these machines aren't 
actually doing anything else.

Without any useful log data, i suppose the investigation ends here. :/
