      I am using drbd-8.0_pre1. When secondary goes down (rcdrbd stop) and
comes up again (rcdrbd start) I get this:
drbd driver loaded OK; device status:
version: 8.0_pre1 (api:80/proto:80)

Relevant syslog msgs are as follows:

drbd: registered as block device major 147
drbd0: disk( Diskless -> Attaching )
drbd0: drbd_bm_resize called with capacity == 10489976
drbd0: bits = 1311247 in /usr/src/drbd-8.0_pre1/drbd/drbd_bitmap.c:369

drbd0: Began resync as SyncTarget (will sync 5244988 KB [1311247 bits set]).
drbd0: Writing meta data super block now.

If the primary goes down and comes up again, however no full sync happens.
drbd just comes up as secondary.

I thought with activity logs & resync bitmaps full-sync was a thing of the
past. Is something wrong on my setup?

drbdadm dump is as follows:

common {
    syncer {
        rate             10M;

resource r0 {
    protocol               C;
    on my-host1 {
        device           /dev/drbd0;
        disk             /dev/sda7;
        meta-disk        internal;
    on my-host2 {
        device           /dev/drbd0;
        disk             /dev/sda7;
        meta-disk        internal;
    net {
        after-sb-0pri    disconnect;
        after-sb-1pri    disconnect;
        after-sb-2pri    disconnect;
    disk {
        on-io-error      detach;
    syncer {
        rate             10M;
        al-extents       257;
    startup {
        degr-wfc-timeout 120;
    handlers {
        pri-on-incon-degr "halt -f";
        pri-lost-after-sb "halt -f";
        outdate-peer     "/usr/lib/drbd/outdate-peer.sh on amd on alf";
