This breaks 2-node mode.

CMAN doesn't gracefully die in this case; fencing needs to happen to fix
it.

Are there any log messages here?  I'm not sure if lack of fencing might
cause this; I suspect not.  It shouldn't stick in recovery mode.

That's a bug in the script resource agent.  Edit
/usr/share/cluster/script.sh and change the 'interval' values for the
monitor + status actions to 10 seconds instead of 3600 seconds / 1 hour.

e.g.
      interval="10"

That should fix it.

Can I convince you to upgrade at least:

   rgmanager
   ccs
   magma
   magma-plugins

...to the update 5 releases?
