Actually we were experiencing similar situations that were handled sub-optimal IMHO:
The cluster decided to fence some node while it had no quorum. The node to be fenced was down anyway, but joined the cluster after reboot. THEN the cluster had quorum and fenced the node that just joined the cluster, causing a loss of quorum again...

I feel that a node freshly joining the cluster should cancel all fencing requests targeted at it.
