Does cman set totem's retransmits_before_loss option? My cluster 
frequently loses the token in 'OPERATIONAL state'. I don't see anything 
in my network stats that indicate a problem. Sometimes when totem 
reforms the cluster, it fences a node that seems to be working fine. 
Sometimes, nodes end up in a disallowed state and quorum is lost. In 
this case, I usually restart the entire cluster.

Would setting totem's token retransmits_before_loss be of any help?
