I will test this when the problem occurs again. Note from my original
post that:

* on open() the file is being looked up at the correct node where it is
present, yet glusterfsd on that node returns 'not found'
* the file can be opened after a gluster restart
* the behavior is the same across all clients (mount points)

This gives me the impression that some stale data or caching occurs
on the server side.

Is there anything else I can test for?
