[Gluster-users] Invalid argument on delete with GlusterFS 3.1.1 client

We have an occasional problem that prevents deletion of certain 
GlusterFS mounted files.  See the following, for example, with 
corresponding log file message.

kevin at cd /glusterfs/atmos/users/kih/ECHAM5/TS4-TEMP
kevin at rm HYBRID_TEMP_207212
rm: cannot remove `HYBRID_TEMP_207212': Invalid argument

[2010-12-28 00:59:04.298331] W [fuse-bridge.c:888:fuse_unlink_cbk] 
glusterfs-fuse: 3997: UNLINK() 
/users/kih/ECHAM5/TS4-TEMP/HYBRID_TEMP_207212 => -1 (Invalid argument)

The file was deleted without error on a machine where the volume was 
mounted via NFS.  I have four compute servers that are using the 
GlusterFS client for performance reasons.  Operating system and 
GlusterFS package details are as follows.

[root at nemo1 TS4-TEMP]# cat /etc/redhat-release
CentOS release 5.5 (Final)
[root at nemo1 TS4-TEMP]# uname -a
Linux nemo1.nerc-essc.ac.uk 2.6.18-194.el5 #1 SMP Fri Apr 2 14:58:14 EDT 
2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
[root at nemo1 TS4-TEMP]# rpm -qa | grep -i gluster

Is there anything I can do to stop this from happening, other than using 
NFS instead of GlusterFS client?
