It looks like some timing issue or race condition. After reboot node
manages to contact qnetd first, before connection to other node is
established. Qnetd behaves as documented - it sees two equal size
partitions and favors the partition that includes tie breaker (lowest
node id). So existing node goes out of quorum. Second later both nodes
see each other and so quorum is regained.

I cannot reproduce it, but I also do not use knet. From documentation I
have impression that knet has artificial delay before it considers links
operational, so may be that is the reason.
