Like Dejan said, you shouldn't run it as a clone, but this is not the
harmful thing here.

The 'stonith-timeout' does not take effect on the params line; you need
to set it as a global cluster property.

How quickly are the nodes rebooting? I've seen this when the time needed
to actually reboot the node (and attempt to rejoin) was faster than the
sbd timeout (i.e., under 10s, which can happen for virtual machines).
