Yes, this is expected behaviour. When you add a node to the cluster,
expected_votes is adjusted to be the higher value of all cluster nodes. If you
want to lock down expected_votes then you need to override it in cluster.conf
otherwise it will be calculated by cman_tool to be the sum of the votes of all
the nodes in that file.
