This has been a cause of a few aborted runs in the past as well, and 
looks like it continues to be so, see [4].

I do not think this is due to your patch, as there are a few instances

fstat.gluster.org unfortunately does not report this test as the cause 
of an aborted run (I mean to file a bug on this), as otherwise I am sure 
this would have bubbled up higher in that report.
