Yes, it was a known issue then. You need to add few lines in mount.glusterfs
to avoid it.. (the patch is applied after 1.3.8)


    # Simple check to avoid multiple identical mounts
    if grep -q "glusterfs $mount_point fuse" /etc/mtab; then
        echo "$0: according to mtab, GlusterFS is already mounted on
        exit 1
