We need to find out what was really causing the problem I think. cman always
uses internal, relative time stamps and I've quite happily run clusters where
the nodes have up to a nine hour time difference.

Of course, your cluster nodes /should/ have similar times on them, if only for
the sanity of your applications but I'm still unclear as to why it would cause a
panic.
