Ok, but compared to a seemingly operational backup ring that appearantly 
ultimately causes the cluster nodes to shoot each other for no actual reason,
this looks like the lesser of two evils to me. Of course, it's mandatory to 
fix the underlying problem by updating our Corosync installation.

Just to make sure: by "not require a restart" you mean, I could update and 
restart the service one node at a time -- while the cluster resources are 
moved to the remaining online node(s)?
