We have some fixes going in the latest build which fix some crashes, can we test with latest build? glusterfs- or later
Comment 4 Jonathan Holloway 2013-08-30 14:19:56 EDT
I am also able to reproduce the problem on glusterfs-

I am not seeing the problem on glusterfs-
Comment 5 Vivek Agarwal 2013-09-05 12:53:47 EDT
We tried running this on glusterfs- and it passed.
Comment 6 Jonathan Holloway 2013-09-05 20:51:21 EDT
Thanks Vivek.

I ran the posix_compliance job against glusterfs- setup as described above and it did not hang for me either.

Changing to verified.
