no, it shouldn't.
iv you move /a/foo to /a/tmp
then move the contents of /a/tmp to /a/foo then it will likely replicate.
the files in /a/foo now dont have the extended attributes so gluster
doesn't know what to do with them.
you can't start replication with pre-existing data. The data has to
at some point been put into the gluster filesytem by gluster.

I test my replication as follows:
echo `hostname` `date` >> /path/to/gluster/mount/glustercheck
then run that from the other server
to make sure they are the same on both machines.
