Right, but once the user did the mistake, we need a way out. I found 
the new places in the posix xlator where taht directory was not properly
ignored, I will submit a patch.

Indeed there was some messy stuff, but the only way I found to fix it was
cp -rp dir dir.bak && mv dir dir.orig && mv dir.bak dir  rm -rf dir.orig

But now I have directories in split brain. The only difference I find
is a file mtime. How should I fix that? gluster volume heal gfs splut-brain latest-mtime dir does not work, and if I try it on the file inside, I am told it is
not in split brain.
