[Gluster-users] [Gluster-devel] missing files

It sounds to me like the files were only copied to one replica, werent
there for the initial for the initial ls which triggered a self heal, and
were there for the last ls because they were healed.  Is there any chance
that one of the replicas was down during the rsync?  It could be that you
lost a brick during copy or something like that.  To confirm I would look
for disconnects in the brick logs as well as checking glusterfshd.log to
verify the missing files were actually healed.
