I'm really unsure how to understand what are you doing. You are 
restarting all nodes and get CS_ERR_BAD_HANDLE? I mean, if you are 
restarting all nodes, which node returns CS_ERR_BAD_HANDLE? Or are you 
restarting just pmxcfs? Or just coorsync?

Again, I'm unsure what you mean by reconnect. On Corosync shudown you 
have to reconnect (I believe this is not the case because you are 
getting error only with 10% probability).

Hard to tell but generally:
- Make sure cpg_init really returns CS_OK. If not, returned handle is 
- Make sure there is no memory corruption and handle is really valid 
(valgrind may be helpful).
