How about you start with the basics - strange inclination to 
complicate things when they are not, I hear from you - 
that's what I did while "stumbled" upon these "issues"
How about just:
a) do vanilla-default pgSQL in Ubuntu (or perhaps any other 
OS of your choice), I use _pg_createcluster_
b) follow PAF official guide (a single PAF resource should 
Have a healthy pgSQL cluster, OS _reboot_ nodes - play with 
that, all should be ok, moving around/electing master should 
work a ok.
Then... add, play with "additional" co/location constraints, 
then OS reboots,- things should begin braking.
I have 3-node HA cluster & 3-node PAF resource = 1 master + 
2 slaves.
Only thing I deliberately set, to alleviate pgsql 
replication was _wal_keep_size_ - I increased that, but this 
is subjective.

It's fine with me if you don't feel like doing this.
