Correct, reintegration to single replicas was causing spurious conflicts
that really were not necessary at all. The servers were just a bit too
conservative about directory version-vectors during reintegration.

Even if you still prefer to use the 5.3.20 clients (to avoid dealing with
the kernel patch that 6.0 clients need), upgrading to 6.0 servers is
definitely recommended.
