FWIW, one likely way to determine whether you are affected by this bug
is to limit self-heal to glustershd ('gluster volume set <vol>
cluster.data-self-heal off'). It seems unlikely, but couldn't hurt to
try I suppose.

Either way, unless it's very obvious this is the same issue I think it
would be preferable to file a separate bug. It's easier to mark it a
duplicate later than to make sense of disjoint threads diagnosing
separate issues or configurations in a single bug. :)
