Can you md5sum on both servers a couple of the files rsync is telling you are out-of-sync? If there isn't a difference in the md5sum values you are good to go. Otherwise please let us know.

Hi Marcus

Can you confirm that you got into this situation by "fiddling" with the 
files outside of gluster?

I hate reading reports like this on the list because it worries me that 
stuff can get out of sync, but in at least the majority of cases the 
"reason" for the lack of sync appears to be some variation of talking to 
the underlying volume directly rather than through the gluster mount 
point?  Can you confirm your problem was traced to this?
