Self-heal is not done by a background process. When a server comes back 
up, self-heal on files will happen the next time they are accessed. 
Doing an "ls -lR" is one way to force self-heal to happen.

What is meant by "background" self-heal is that reads to a file will not 
block while the self-heal is in progress. This feature is new in the 3.x
