I worked it out...

The Red Hat changelog for 1.1.8-2 originally contained

+- Cman is the only supported membership & quorum provider, do not ship the corosync plugin

When this decision was reversed (when I realised no-one was seeing the ERROR logs indicating it was going away), I neglected to re-instate the following distro specific patch (which avoided conflicts between the ID used by CMAN and Pacemaker):

diff --git a/configure.ac b/configure.ac

--- a/configure.ac
+++ b/configure.ac

 if test $SUPPORT_CS = no; then

So Pacemaker < 6.4 is talking on slot 10, while Pacemaker == 6.4 is using slot 9.
This is why the two versions cannot see each other :-(
I'm very sorry.
