right - but i currently have 53 lines of output (crm_mon -1|wc -l) if
everything is operating normal. imagine more errors showing up. this
does not contribute to a better overview.

maybe - i cannot tell as i rebootet via:
> /etc/init.d/heartbeat stop && reboot -fn

resulting in:

> Node: wc02 (f36760d8-d84a-46b2-b452-4c8cac8b3396): OFFLINE

so actually, this is a regular stop, right?
