It's an assumption that mogtool makes: that when you inject something
there will be a mindevcount of >= 2.  It assumes there will be

mogtool is designed to never complete until it is satisfied the file
is properly stored in MogileFS.  This means: every chunk has been
replicated.  For added security, if you specify --verify then mogtool
will check the MD5 hash of every chunk.

Perhaps mogtool could use an option to --ignore-replication or
similar.  That or automatically pull down the mindevcount for the
given class and use that information?
