RHEL5 is the same FWIW, or should be.

This should not cause a problem.

What do you mean here, (sorry, being daft)

Restart all nodes = "just rgmanager on all nodes", or "reboot all

cman_tool services from each node could help here.

If you're rebooting the other 4 nodes, it sounds like the 5th is holding
some sort of a lock which it shouldn't be across quorum transitions
(which would be a bug).

If this is the case, could you:

* install rgmanager-debuginfo
* get me a backtrace:

    gdb clurgmgrd `pidof clurgmgrd`
    thr a a bt
