Well, apparently this is the result of  (or is exposed by) a subtle

Assume gluster1 is the name of the remote peer, and is
its IP addresses.

Well, I did :

    gluster peer probe

but then:

    gluster volume create gv0 replica 2 [...] gluster1:/export/brick1

So I used IP address to add the peer, but host-name to add a brick to
the volume.

Instead, if I coherently use name either for peer and volume brick
definition, glusterd starts normally, even if the DNS resolution fails
(in which case the remote peer is correctly treated as a disconnected

(of course it's assumed that at least the local peer is correctly
resolved, or the IP address is used for it)
