That sounds to me like there is a lot of activity from both nodes
relating to the same directory. Can you split the logs of the two nodes
into two different directories? That will probably solve the problem.

This kind of problem is tricky to debug since the glock dumps will tell
you what state the glocks are currently in, and not what has been
happening the in past.

In the upstream code we've now got GFS2 tracepoints which will help in
tracking down issues like this, but those are not in RHEL yet,
