Do you mean you have a custom fencing agent configured? If so, check
the return value of each attempt. Pacemaker should request fencing only
once as long as it succeeds (returns 0), but if the agent fails
(returns nonzero or times out), it will retry, even if the reboot
worked in reality.
If instead you mean you have a script that can request fencing (e.g.
via stonith_admin), then check the logs before each attempt to see if
the request was initiated by the cluster (which should show a policy
engine transition for it) or your script.
FYI, corosync 2 has a "two_node" setting that includes "wait_for_all"
-- with that, you don't need to ignore quorum in pacemaker, and the
cluster won't start until both nodes have seen each other at least
