I have 2 other fun questions, seeing as I had some similar problems when I
started off.
1) what is the physical media (or lvm) you are putting drbd over?
2) what kind of interface do you have to it?

for me:
1) Promise RM8000, hardware raid box connected through scsi
2) scsi using SCSI storage controller: Adaptec AHA-3960D / AIC-7899A U160/m
Both of these needed software upgrades when I got them, and I only figured it
out after commenting out 'do-panic' in the drbd conf and waiting to see the
lower level panic (or /var/log/messages to show some thing).

Remember to put the 'do-panic' back once you figure it out.

repeat after me 'never trust hardware until it has survived you trying to kill
it ... repeatedly' 
`badblocks -c 10000 -wv /dev/devicetodie` is your friend.
