There is a bug in glusterfs 3.7.6 where if the glusterd gets restarted 
for whatever reason, and you do any operation that modifies volfile info 
(like replace-brick for example), then the volume becomes a normal 
replica 3 volume. This has been fixed by Pranith  
(http://review.gluster.org/#/c/12479/) and will make it to 3.7.7 which I 
think is scheduled to be released in a week or two. I'll document the 
steps that need to be performed to restore the volume to the arbiter 
configuration and add it to the release notes.
