 Sure, once I am able to collect some information about it instead of 
 reciting my memory from a year ago.
 The pattern is like this:
      A and B run.
      A is master in 4 crap instances.
      B ist backup on those instances
      A goes down
      B becomes master on those 4 instances
      A comes up and gets stuck forever in "waiting for DAD to complete"
 Unfortunatly this happens on our gateway routers to testing time is 
 limited. Maybe
 I can recreate that elsewhere but not on short notice.
