Wild guess on that: Gluster may work harder at files it doesn't find than
files it finds. It's going to look on one side or the other of the
replicated file at first, and if it finds the file deliver it. But if it
doesn't find the file, wouldn't it then check the other side of the
replicated storage to make sure this wasn't a replication error? 

Might be interesting to run a version of the test where all the images
referenced do exist, to see if it's the missing files that are driving up
the CPU cycles.
