[Gluster-users] Unexpected AFR self-heal behavior (file contents not synced).

Thank you, that helped. Changing the order, I now have the expected data everywhere except in the backend directory on server B.  When I cat the backend files on server B I get file x with the original content (not updated) and file y is there but empty.  The client mount point on both machines shows the correct updated file contents (as does the backend on server A).

The only attributes set on the backend files now are "trusted.glusterfs.afr.data-pending=0x0000000000000000". This is the same for all files on both sides. Should there be create time and version attributes there (this is on 2.0rc4)? I'm wondering if I've got something funny going on there.
