Do you think I should file a bug for this? I can reliably reproduce using
the steps in my original e-mail. (This is Gluster 3.7.2, by the way.)

This indeed seems to do the same as the `du`: when run as root on the
server running the complete brick, the file appears on the incomplete brick
as well. Initially as an empty file, but after a few seconds the complete
file exists. When the `stat` is not ran as root, this doesn't happen, which
I still think is bizarre.
