Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

This is no cluster setup, I run them isolated and once a day I power up
the secondary for synchronization, and there is no firewall involved. I
will certainly not let them sync as long as this is not resolved. The
behavior so far was that the isolated primary always remained in primary
mode. I don't understand why this has changed.
