As there seems to be no solution to this problem: Does an upgrade to 0.8 

Which version do you recommend on Etch? There's 8.0.12 on Backports, but 
states "make sure you get DRBD 8.2.3 or later; there were some bugs in 
pre-8.2.3 versions that ran a slight chance of messing up 0.7 metadata 

Are these Bugs fixed in the 8.0 branch? Releasenotes for 8.0.7 already 
say "Fixed drbdmeta's conversion of 07 style meta data". Is this the 
same change as the "completely new drbdmeta - finally dealing with all 
drbd-0.7 to drbd-8.x conversion cases correctly." mentioned in the 8.2.3 
realease notes?

Grüße, Matthias
