Being new to *this* type of clustering,
I had to delve into this matter too (see my other thread).
As far as I understand,
this so called STONITH behaviour is perfectly OK!
As long as 1 of the two nodes is slightly faster [fencing
the other] nothing is wrong. You end up with a 1-node
cluster which has quorum and will run your services.

Everything is better than accidentally having two nodes
running the services.
