[Gluster-users] Why does glusterfs not automatically fix these kinds of problems?

I dont know for sure, but my guess is that these files dont have the 
gluster extended attributes on them so it might be loosing it's mind over that.
if you move them and copy them back into the gluster mounted 
filesystem, does that fix the problem?

when you use unison, you're not using the underlying filesystem, but 
you're using the gluster mount, correct?

I think gluster doesn't like when the underlying filesystem is acted 
on directly.
