Such was my assumption.

A knows :-)

Now that you point that out once more, it does seem strange that A
considered itself not UpToDate. I had been under the wrong impression
that A was shut down before B. This probably renders my earlier
ramblings futile.

I would like to see pertinent log entries from node A regarding the
broken resource, especially from the time immediately before and after
A's reboot, and around B's shutdown.

Thanks for pointing out that mistake.
