[Gluster-users] hanging of mounted filesystem (3.3.1)

	To close out this thread I rebuilt the entire volume with ZFS
instead of ext4 and it now appears to work well. I have not loaded it up yet
but the ls / ll hanging problem is gone and I can move data to and from the
mounted filesystem via a glusterfs mount.
