I'm discovering glusterfs and try to see if it could fit our needs.

I installed two nodes running gluster 3.6.1, and a client using 3.6.0.

I'm aware of the bug about the locale, preventing mounting a volume :

and I thought I knew the workaround :

but what is puzzling me is what I observe :

env -i LC_NUMERIC="C" /usr/sbin/glusterfs --volfile-id=glvol00 
--volfile-server=serv-gl-adm1 /mnt

-> mounting OK

env -i LC_NUMERIC="C" mount -t glusterfs serv-gl-adm1:/glvol00 /mnt
Mount failed. Please check the log file for more details.

-> mounting FAILING

According to
both commands should work...

Precise comparisons of the mnt.log file does not show anything obvious, 
both ways are running strictly the same, but last one is failing with no
