The backend filesystem is XFS. The command used to create it was 
"mkfs.xfs" without any option.
I later (Aug. 5th) changed the mount options in /etc/fstab from 
"defaults" to "noatime,attr2".

My problems started to happen on Aug. 6-7, so one of my suspictions is 
that having set "noatime,attr2" on already existing data (used by 
glusterfs) may have led to errors on the AFR side.
