Yes, you're correct.  I've looked at the logs, and it's a side effect of
the other bug where cman should disallow the merger of the two clusters.
So, in summary, you've identified three different problems, each one is an
effect of the one before it:

1. unidentified openais bug(s) in RHEL5.0 cause the two nodes to initially
   form independent clusters -- fixed in 5.1

2. bz 251966 is triggered by (1) -- fixed in 5.2 (maybe earlier)

3. groupd/fenced don't fence the failed node; this is triggered by (2).
   once (2) is fixed this won't happen
