There are a couple of problems here; You need:

<cman expected_votes="1" two_node="1">

With a two-node, quorum is effectively useless, as a single node is 
allowed to continue. Also, without proper fencing, things will not fail 
properly. This means that you are in somewhat of an undefined area.

Can you setup proper fencing, make the <cman .../> change and then try 
again? If the problem persists, please paste your entire cluster.conf 
(please only alter passwords) along with the relevant sections of logs 
from both nodes?
