Looks like you found it.

I don't think you mentioned that one of the NICs was dead in your
original post.  Losing a NIC in active/active load-balancing bonding
will definitely cause problems.  The bonding driver isn't very smart
about losing a link in load-balancing mode.

I would switch both nodes to active/backup.
