ok, sorry, I just notice this may have sounded offending ...
was not meant that way.

as long as they are "WFConnection", the Wait for connecten,
so they are not connected, thus they cannot sync.

Unconnected is even a *transitory* state.

anyways, the output looks like an outdated cvs version.
please use latest cvs, and try again.

and, always *mention* the version of software you use.  with development
versions like drbd 0.7-pre, it makes even a difference from what *day*
your checkout is.

interessting. you may want to talk with the openssi guys,
they started to try and integrate drbd early this year.

well, what is "very sensitive" ?
and what network errors are you talking about?

give me more context, please ...
