Do you use gluster to get replicated storage? Or just because it allows 
multiple clients over network? - In the later case I would recommend using nfs 
on server and client.
Is the homedir mounted as glusterfs or via nfs?

Why are you restarting the server?

With nfs, if the server is not responding, the clients access suspends and 
blocks. I haven't yet tested myself what happens when glusterfs looses contact 
to all bricks. But then again I am investigating in gluster because of the 
replication across multiple machines to reduce the impact of a single machine 
failure (which is working with "-t glusterfs").

Have fun,
