Statements like this do not give me the warm fuzzies.  Is Gluster safe
to use in a production environment?

Noted.  I will do the same then.

This particular file, yes.  I can open with tar -ztvf and see it's
contents just fine.  However I have found other problems.

One of the files listed by heal-failed is:

2013-07-11 16:07:53

When I try to access the file, I get:

# ls -ald
ls: cannot access
No such file or directory

Both of the above files are listed as having been healed.  The first one
is available, the second one returns an error.
