Thanks, self-heal works with this. You might want to get it merged in 
4.0 ASAP.

I still got the mkdir error on a plain distribute volume that I referred 
to in the other email in this thread. Anyone who is interested in trying 
it out, the steps are:
- Create a 2 node 2x1 plain distribute vol on 3.13 and fuse mount on node-1
- Upgrade 2nd node to 4.0 and once it is up and running,
- Perform mkdir from the mount on node1-->this returns EIO

PS: Feeling a bit under the weather, so I might not be online today again.
