[Gluster-users] Mount point problem

I just had to deal with a situation where a glusterfs filesystem would 
not mount because someone had managed to create some files and 
directories under the mount point.  Perhaps this behavior is 
intentional, but I would prefer that it work like NFS and just 
overmount.  When bringing a cluster down and back up, it is quite 
possible for overeager users to log in and start working before 
everything is up.

In addition the error message was unhelpful:

-bash-3.2# glusterfs --server fs01 /data --volume-name=data
glusterfs: could not open specfile
