ZFS :: glusterfs 3.7.6 :: samba-vfs-glusterfs 3.7

Migrated distributed data from glusterfs 3.5 to newly installed OS with
glusterfs 3.7.6
When using gluster-client, folder/file manipulation all works normaily.
However, when using samba -vfs-glusterfs module, file manipulation fails at
deletion. It only deletes the metadata. when viewed through shell, it still
exhibits the file in the directory. only way to delete fully is through
