Bug.  Check from the logs at what point the exclusive lock is dropped.
(We fixed bug similar to this before.)

Bug.
You may have to query the status afterwards to work out the
right return code to use or combine the responses from all the nodes 
intelligently to see that exactly one has it active.
(The node running the command doesn't know what activation filters
might be set on other nodes, so must send the command to every node
but expect exactly one to end up with it active.)
