[Gluster-users] some glitches, directories unreadable intermittently

I recently made a change to my organization's infrastructure so that it 
relies on glusterfs, however, we are encountering some glitches.

Users mount the shared filesystems with nfs mount, but the glitch is 
that sometimes directories are not readable.

In a typical case, an executable from the gluster filesystem will be on 
the path, the user will type the name of the executable, and will get 
"command not found."  If the user tries to "ls" the directory, they will 
get "directory unreadable."  However, if they "ls" a directory closer to 
the root of the hierarchy a few times, then the original directory will 
become readable again, and everything will work as one would normally 

Have problems like this occurred before for anyone else?  Are there any 
known remedies?

My gluster version is:
glusterfs 3.7.4 built on Sep  1 2015 15:53:53
