either "coincidence", or because of the added IO load (read the whole
disk and checksum it) changes the timing. this has nothing to do with
the "hanging" drbd resource, though.

that is an interessting hint.
this has been fixed in 8.2.7.
as a workaround, you can use e.g. iptables to disconnect/reconnect,
but chances are that an online verify will again get stuck in your setup.
just make sure that you add the drbd-8.2.7 hotfix for the online verify
as well, so either use the drbd 8.2.7 tarball
plus this patch:
or even better, use drbd-8.2 HEAD, there:
we are confident that we will release a fine 8.3.0 this week,
which supersedes the 8.2 series.
