Hi Daniel,

Can you consider testing 3.3.0qa32+ versions untill 3.3.0beta3 is made 
available? Because 3.3.0beta2 was pretty old and we have made 
significant changes/bug fixes after the beta2 release.

Considering this is a 'stripe' volume, what is the backend filesystem 
you are using? Because with XFS there seems to be some issues with data 
block pre-allocation algorithm, and glusterfs's logic of leaving holes 
for striped blocks. We are evaluating better ways of solving the stripe 
issue, till then, I recommend ext4 or other filesystems for you as backend.
