Actually, deadlock wouldn't be your problem.  If your SAN client is
configured to cache directory existance data, a server can end up
overwriting changes from another when both think they have a lock.  For
this sort of reason, folks on this list usually discourage this setup,
but I've seen it done right and someone who knows what they are doing
can usually pull it off.  I recommend frequent backups regardless, but
anyone experimenting with this setup for the first time should be
especially careful.
