Hi Arend-Jan,

Agreed upon your point. Its possible for making mistakes in writing spec
file, and if we start without problem, this is never looked into as admin
assumes everything went smoothly. (well, if he sees the log, he can see a
warning though).

Code committed to fail the init() if the export directory is not existing
already, hence admin has to create it before starting glusterfs. Should be
available from next releases.
