[Gluster-users] AFR problems with 1.4qa63

I'm running 1.4.0qa63

it seems that the problems I reported long ago are still present.

so I have 2 nodes AFR'ing eachother.

when one is offline the other basically doesn't work.

I get  error log entries with (Invalid Argument) for any file which 
doesn't exists when it does a lookup.

this is a problem for the webserver because it tries to find a 
.htaccess file.. and instead of being told by gluster it doesn't 
exist, it produces some error, and so apache reports back 
forbidden  until the other server goes back online.

if I change the AFR brick to NOT include the other server, and 
remount then all is well in the world, but if the other (offline) 
server is in the afr subvolumes list then I get this problem.

also, I'm noticing a LOT of messages on both servers about impunging 
and expunging directories.  this seems to be happening a lot more 
frequently than makes sense, but I dont know what this does really 
but I know that sometimes this takes a VERY long time and things 
timeout.  (mostly on large directories).
