I've never heard of that happening before.  Here are a couple things you
could try.

- Try mounting one fs at a time and seeing if there's problems with just
  one of them, or all, or only when there's more than one fs mounted...

- Shut down the cluster and have just a single node mount each fs
  using lock_nolock: mount -t gfs /dev/foo /gfs -o lockproto=lock_nolock
  This mounts the fs as a local file system, so make sure you don't have
  other nodes mounting the fs!  Once it's mounted like this, see if you
  can access the fs normally.

Those will be running all the time.
