[Gluster-users] Directory writes yes, directory reads no

     The quick question:  Has anyone else run into the issue where  
they can write files to a directory, but then are unable to see them  
with something like `ls`?  After starting the server and client and  
mounting the glusterfs share to /mnt/gluster, if I cd into it and run  
`touch foo && ls`, no files are visible.  However if I then look at  
the actual directory being shared, /usr/export, file foo is present.   
This problem seems counterintuitive.  I can provide logs and the  
config if there isn't an obvious answer, however nothing in the logs  
immediately grabs me.
     As a background, I'm looking at alternatives to our Isilon  
cluster, and all of our client servers are FreeBSD 7.0.  I know that  
is not currently a supported client OS, however GlusterFS would be a  
seemingly good candidate for our needs and the fact writes actually  
work is promising.
