direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.


1. 0.7 is outdated;
2. You are 4 releases behind even the current 0.7 release;
3. We can't guess your drbd.conf, or your Xen domU config for that matter;
4. Upgrade to at least 0.7.25 to see if your issue persists;
5. If it does, please post again and include relevant configuration files.

And btw Heartbeat 2.0.7 is outdated (and buggy too), even though that is 
unlikely to be the root cause of your problem.
