Yeah, this frustrates the heck out of me every time too.

As a thought, did you nuke the /brick1/gv0 directory on *both* of the
servers?  Looking at the cut-n-pasted log below, it seems like you
nuked the dir on nfs1, but not on nfs2.

And it'd probably really help on our end if the "failed: /brick1/gv0
is already part of a volume" message included the node name as well,
just for it to be super clear. ;)
