My understanding was that only probes would still occur (on
cluster-recheck-interval, or when new nodes joined the cluster). And I
maintain that that would be the intuitively "correct" behavior for
unmanaged resources. Andrew?

Which seems to operate on the same assumption, really, that an unmanaged
resource never has its monitor action executed.

I still think that this attempt to auto-recover from _within_ the
monitor action is a bit insane, but maybe lmb (who implemented that
part, as per git blame) would be able to share his thoughts as to why he
did it that way.
