If the crashed node tries to join while the other node thinks it's still in
the cluster then it will get rejected and its join should fail. Of course the
other node will still think it's alive but won't be able to talk to it because
it doesn't have any services running.

When the remaining node notices it has gone then it should fence it (and cause
another power cycle!). So things should be OK.

Are you seeing actual problems ?
