Ziemowit Pierzycki,
       The behaviour you are observing is added to handle the following 
corner use case:
In case of split-brain/gfid mismatch of a file, if a file is deleted on 
one of the bricks the file is replicated to the other machine.
That said Adding data to backend directly will disable the ability of 
replication to decide which copy of the file is good vs bad when the 
file needs to be self-healed. So please use fuse mount data path.
