[Linux-cluster] Priority in failover domains sometimes not honoured

I have the following failover domains:

              <failoverdomain name="prio_host1" ordered="1" restricted="1">
                      <failoverdomainnode name="host1" priority="1"/>
                      <failoverdomainnode name="host2" priority="2"/>
              <failoverdomain name="prio_host2" ordered="1" restricted="1">
                      <failoverdomainnode name="host1" priority="2"/>
                      <failoverdomainnode name="host2" priority="1"/>

But often a service for, say, "prio_host2" stays running on host1,
(or vice versa), while both hosts are running fine.  In a "stable"
situation, that service should be moved to host2, AFAIK (and I
have seen this happen in some situations).

This is on RHEL 5.0.

Is this a bug or...?
