Description Jonathan Earl Brassow 2007-04-26 12:27:54 EDT
Problem is that the kernel (main mirror code) does not do any marks/clears when
writing to a region before its recovery.  So, it is not possible for the server
to detect a conflict.  Basically, we must turn back on the
'is_remote_recovering' function and disallow any writes to regions that are OR
WILL BE recovering.

It's really going to cause some pain during writes while mirrors are re-syncing.
 We might be able to find a better fix for 4.6.

this issue was resolved in 4.5, and the "better fix" is in place for 4.6.

post -> modified.
