What is your configuration? I experienced similar problems with unify
after a disk crash. The namespace (replicated) was not rebuilt correctly
after replacing the failing unit and I had to add some files manually
(OK, using a script, but an intervention was needed). No data loss,
only a bit of tweaking and tampering ;).
