Often it's not individual pieces that are fragile but combinations of
pieces.  For example, two possible interactions might be involved for

(1) There are known problems with the interaction between FUSE and
transparent hugepages
(https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=764964).  This could cause
one or more of your server processes to lock up.

(2) There are known problems with OpenVZ and our use of the "trusted"
extended-attribute namespace
(http://forum.openvz.org/index.php?t=msg&goto=35230&).  This should
result in a clean failure, but it's possible that it's leading to
problems tracking which replicas need updates instead.

If you're still having problems with the workarounds for those two
issues, please let us know.
