[Linux-cluster] manual fencing not working in RHEL4 branch

We are using cluster-1.00 code.  I didn't see modifications under 1.01
that would have an impact, but maybe I missed something.

You are right, I see step 5 happen before step 4 (but remember,
sometimes it works fine specially after I run with 'fenced -D').  And
I have never seen any of these problems when I use IPMI or DRAC.

BTW, for simplicity sake, I wasn't even running rgmanager.  Just ccsd,
cman and fenced.
