We've been using an AFR configuration of gluster where there are a few  
gluster servers and many gluster clients. We've noticed that recently,  
the permissions on the mount point from the client's perspective  
occasionally change to 444. There's no evidence of sudo or chmod  
activity in system logs, and cron.d, cron.daily, logrotate.d all come  
up clean as well, which is a good thing. We've been trying to track  
down any rogue scripts, but it's worth checking out if there are  
circumstances in which gluster might change the permissions of its  

When the permissions do change to 444 on the mountpoint, they also  
change on /var/gluster/ns to match (as expected).

Anyone seen this on a gluster environment before?
