the replication is "lazy", so that you have to run at least a stat() on a
object to get all (available at the moment) replicas to synchronize.

Upon the next use.

ls -alR on a filetree is sufficient for synchronization (assuming there
are no conflicts, connectivity is ok and the servers are doing well).
