This I can confirm.

Unfortunately, neither me nor any colleague has any idea what this
means. We have no real sysadmins at our institute, sorry. A wild guess:
As we are using glusterFS 3.1.1, I have never edited or even seen any
volfiles. Or is that something different?
As the workaround really seems to work, I think we'll stick with that
for the moment. Any more ideas about the "delete problem"?
