It would be very interesting to look at the trusted.glusterfs.dht
xattrs on (the various copies of) that directory, especially as
compared to the same on some other directory where you *do* get
the ENOSPC error.  It does sound like we think that one brick is
full, even though there's no particular reason we should.  Maybe
misinterpreting some other error?  Using a different filesystem
"under" the one that's currently mounted there, and that one
really *is* full?  That could happen if glusterfsd is starting
before local filesystems are all mounted, for example.
