Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

First it was executed for drbd5_1.

Jan  8 15:29:31 xen11 lrmd: [2403]: info: RA output:

It stopped all resources running on node xen11:

Jan  8 15:29:37 xen11 Xen[32084]: INFO: Xen domain www will be stopped  
(timeout: 26s)
Jan  8 15:29:37 xen11 Xen[32089]: INFO: Xen domain mail4 will be  
stopped (timeout: 26s)
Jan  8 15:29:37 xen11 Xen[32086]: INFO: Xen domain typo3 will be  
stopped (timeout: 26s)

www: 	drbd1_1, drbd1_2
mail4: 	drbd8_1 [*], drbd8_2
typo3: 	drbd2_1, drbd2_2

[*] This is the only "suspicious" one.

In my naive point of view I never would expect this behaviour.

BTW: I remember something like a state-transition graph existing for  
DRBD-0.7. Would be nice to have something human (and machine) readable  
to create automated tests, resp. review the current test-coverage.
