[Gluster-devel] Self heal fails but file can be accessed

   Reading a regular file with data split-brain, file/dir with different gfids are the things that give EIO at the moment.

   What action do you think we shall take in this scenario?.

I do this:
$ ls -l /pfs/manu/netbsd/usr/src/tools/sed/Makefile  
-rw-r--r--  1 manu  manu  159 Jun 18  2006 /pfs/manu/netbsd/usr/src/tools/sed/Makefile

And I get that in the client logs:

How should I understand that behavior? Shouldn't I get EIO?
