Isn't rsync about the worst to do in order to populate a gluster volume? Wouldn't
it help to have multiple threads copying files in order not to have to wait for
stat-calls to propagate back and forth between client and server(s)?

Ah, so I'm not the only one that experienced problems, perhaps time to
try to deploy gluster once more.

Is ext4 still a problem, or is that particular issue fixed (entries occuring 
multiple times might indicate that it's not, but the true reason for that behaviour
when I tested still eludes me [due to lacking understanding of the internals]).
